This study is aimed to examine the influence of office politics, fairness, and trust in leader on employee intention to leave in the higher education family-owned company in Indonesia. This study utilised quantitative method with 116 sample sizes. Previous study shows that the most prominent challenge for the family business is to maintain the fairness within the company. In this matter, there are possibilities that the tense organisation politics might be higher than other organisations. Moreover, trust in leader is also imperative, since family-owned business is highly symbolised by the family member as the leaders. Unfortunately, while these factors appeared to be pivotal, it can influence the turnover intention of the employee. This might be imperative due to its detrimental effect on the successor availability. The study found that the higher the employee perceived the political action in the company, the higher the employee’s intention to leave.
