Background and Objective: Employment is one of the important social determinants of health. The aim of this study was determining the relationship between job satisfaction and Health-Related Quality of Life (QOL) in Gilan-e-Gharb teachers in 2013.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on teachers of Gilan-e-Gharb City (n:375) in 2013. They were selected by Multi-stage cluster sampling method. The Minnesota Job satisfaction and SF-36 questionnaires and demographic checklist were used for data collection. Data were analyzed using independent t test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation tests and multiple linear regression.

Results: The mean age of the respondents was 40.71±5.26 years, 48.1% (n= 169) of them were female. Pearson's correlation test showed that there was a positive and significant relationship between job satisfaction and dimensions of QOL including: Vitality (p= 0.024 r= 0.120), Mental Health (p= 0.005 r= 0.148), Social Functioning (p= 0.011 r= 0.136), Role-Emotional (p= 0.032 r= 0.114) and General health (p= 0.002 r= 0.169). Among variables entered in the regression model, the variables of educational level, employment status, exercise status and intrinsic subscale of job satisfaction, explained 12.6% of overall health-related QOL changes (R= 0.355).

Conclusion: In this study, the relationship between job satisfaction and QOL in teachers was supported. Considering the great importance of teaching and the special responcibility of the teachers designing and implementation of purposeful programs by the Ministry of Education in order to make positive effects on job satisfaction and promotion of QOL in teachers seems essential.
