This study was also supposed to measure the effects of demographic factors on job stress among different categories of teachers, i.e., PSTs, ESTs, and SSTs working in public sector schools in Punjab, Pakistan. Due to a shortage of time and financial resources, this study was delimited to of Faisalabad Division. The sample of this study comprised 700 respondents selected by a multi-stage proportionate stratified random sampling technique. A standardized scale was employed for determining workplace stress after taking permission. In addition to descriptive statistics, i.e., frequencies, percentages, mean scores, and standard deviations, inferential statistics, i.e., independent sample t-test and one-way ANOVA were also calculated from the collected data using SPSS 23 to test the already formulated null hypotheses of the study. Based on the study findings, it was concluded that the majority of school teachers are facing low-level job stress, whereas gender and qualification have no significant effect on job stress, but the designation has a significant effect on the job stress of teachers.
