Get the necessary tools needed to comply with the ADA and avoid both bad press and costly claims from service or emotional support animal situations.

Many employers are now confronting difficult ADA issues relating to such animals and the workplace. This topic will give you the information to know what animals qualify as service animals and how an employer can determine if an animal is really a service animal versus a comfort animal. It will also address if an employer must provide food, a relief area, someone to walk a service animal and breaks for walking. You will also learn when a service animal may be excluded from the workplace or certain areas and best practices if an employer is confronted by an employee request to bring a service or emotional support animal to work and potential conflicts with other employees who are allergic to or afraid of dogs.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify what is and what isn't a service animal under the ADA.
  • You will be able to discuss what questions an employer may lawfully ask to determine if an animal is a service animal.
  • You will be able to describe an employer's rights and obligations as to workplace service or emotional support animals.
  • You will be able to explain when an employer can exclude a service animal.
