Commuting to and from work can sometimes be difficult for individuals with certain limitations. Fatigue, mobility limitations, seizures, and vision loss are the most common problems found when commuting is a problem. Solutions may come in the form of a flexible schedule to access alternate transportation and telework.
Employees who experience limitations in concentration may need a flexible schedule in order to work optimally during hours of increased attentiveness. Flexible schedules can also be used to have a period of mental rest in order to refocus and reorient into his/her work. Examples of a flexible schedule would be adjusting starting and ending times of the workday, combining regularly scheduled breaks to create one extended break or dividing large breaks into smaller segments, and allowing work to be completed during hours when the employee is most mentally alert.
