It happens. We're always experimenting with lights at work, and trying to use whiter lights with fewer lamps ("bulbs") in the fixtures by changing the types of ballasts. Some lights make some people feel slightly dizzy until they get used to the light. In other instances, the color of light emitted just isn't acceptable to some people.

Usually we just try changing lights in a wing of the building without telling anyone and then see who complains or what happens. There are usually fewer complaints when they don't know we've "been up to something." The blue-white light of the led makes some people feel slightly disoriented, and have problems with depth perception, among other things. It takes time to adjust.
