When it comes to accommodating employees, this can mean to adjust their schedule based on a holiday or religious beliefs an employee has. Accommodation is also adjusting the workplace design to enable an individual with a specific disability to perform a particular task. An example of this would be in a restaurant, a waitress can be in a wheelchair but the tables would just have to be lowered a little bit and ramps would need to be set up for them so that they can get around easily. Any employer in a small or large organization is expected to accommodate an employee to the point of under hardship, which means the financial cost of accommodation or health, and safety risks to the individual concerned or other employees would make accommodation possible.
