The prime purpose of this research was to test the cross cultural construct validity and the reliability of the Work Related Quality of Life (WRQoL) scale developed by Van Laar and colleagues (2007) and Job Related Affective Well-being Scale by Sevastos (1996). 288 employees participated in the study from a range different occupational backgrounds. The employees had a mean age of 34.25 years and average work experience of 12.17 years. 52.1% of the participants were men. Three items needed to be removed from WRQoL according to the CFA results and the new structure for Turkish version of the WRQoL consisted of 20 items and 6 factors with acceptable to good fit indices. Job related affective well-being scale showed a consistent factor and item structure with the Turkish sample indicated by good fit indices. All sub-scales and scales showed significant correlations. We might consider that the 20 item WRQoL and 12 item job related affective well-being scale are both valid and reliable in a Turkish context.
