Employers and managers need to be careful to integrate employees into whatever workplace arrangements prevail. Where such arrangements involve teamwork, employees should have opportunities not only to work with others on group projects, but, when appropriate, to assume leadership roles.

Where there is no formal team approach and the work is organised in a more traditional system, employees with disabilities should be involved in staff meetings and service/event planning. Employees with disabilities should also be involved in union meetings if they are members. This degree of involvement should also extend to social events, informal employee gatherings e.g. sporting activities.
