The relationships between job satisfaction and occupational stress were investigated as part of a larger study. The participants were the staff members of High schools selected through Randomize sampling. Three hundred and fifty six staff members from 100 High schools of Sabarkantha District of Gujarat state (India). There were nine job satisfaction and four occupational stress factors identified. Correlation and multiple regression analyses were utilized to investigate the hypothesized relationships. Moderate to strong correlations existed between most of the job satisfaction and occupational stress variables. However, multiple regressions revealed occupational stress to be the best predictor of only two job satisfaction variables. Occupational stress did, nevertheless explain considerable variance in other facets of job satisfaction. The results hold implications for school systems and school administrators.
