The sample of the research consists of 422 participants in education, health, public, IT, retailing, service, com-merce, tourism, transportation, industry and logistics sectors. The contribution of the research is ex-ploring the relationship between burnout, social support and work-life balance. Findings of the re-search demonstrate that social support has an effect on work-life balance and also has partially mediat-ing effect amid work-life balance and burnout. Observations suggest that burnout levels of women employees are extensive than men employees. To conclude; work-life balance, social support and burnout group levels differ according to gender whilst no significant difference among work-life bal-ance, social support and burnout group levels according to marital status. As for changes in work life, salary and family life due to COVID-19 outbreak precautions, hypotheses are partly accepted.
