Abstract: This research sought to understand the relationship between quality of life, dyadic adjustment, anxiety and depression in the employed and unemployed individuals, being supported by the following scientific question: quality of life, dyadic adjustment and the emergence of anxious or depressive symptoms are influenced by the (un) employment? We conducted an integrated study on the quantitative paradigm, in which 60 subjects participated, 30 employees and 30 unemployed, of both sexes, aged between 18 and 65, to which were applied the following evaluation instruments: English version Instrument Abbreviated Assessment of Quality of Life of the World Health Organization (WHOQOL - Bref), the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS), the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and the Zung Anxiety Scale (SAS). We conducted a study of descriptive and correlational non-experimental and exploratory nature. The data were processed by applying procedures of descriptive and inferential statistics. The general findings show that unemployed subjects have lower quality of life, higher levels of anxiety and depression as well as lower levels of dyadic adjustment, as well as the level of satisfaction and the expression of affection. We found a statistically significant relationship between quality of life and dyadic adjustment, anxiety and depression in (un) employed subjects, verifying a statistically significant correlation between dyadic cohesion and social relationships on employees. The results show a statistically significant correlation between anxiety and quality of life on the physical and the environment.
