The availability of time is same for everyone, but its value varies in different work structures, which affects the time use pattern of people differently. Around the World, time poverty is a widespread phenomenon that affects a large segment of people in every corner of the society, mostly; it is much visualized among the employees' class due to their higher time devotion to paid and unpaid works, which reduces the time spent on self-maintenance activities. The present study tries to establish a relationship between various job places in the education sector and its impact on employee’s self-maintenance time. For this purpose, we have selected the Punjab state by stratified random sampling, the data has been based on primary and secondary sources collected from various educational institutions viz schools, colleges, and ITI's employees, for measuring the time poverty we use Foster–Greer–Thorbecke (FGT) Index. The results of the study showed that women are much more affected by time poverty than their male counterparts because of unequal distribution of unpaid work among male and females. In addition, the nature of job also affects employees' magnitude of time poverty, as it regulates the level of income which determine the time spent on various activities.
