    I am not sure I understand how working the shift she was hired for is suffering an adverse impact. This decision is setting a bad precedent because it is just childcare - there is no special need to be accommodated. As someone who was a single parent for many years with 2 children - I had to manage shiftwork. If a child has special needs (or an elderly parent) that requires the attention of the employee, I can understand the need to accommodate - but simply for the expense of child care? I would be concerned about the flood gates this decision could open.
