Mar 5 - Personnel: ADA & Animals in the Workplace
Description: The Americans with Disabilities Act requires reasonable accommodations for the disabled, but how far does that extend when it comes to service animals in the workplace? This webinar will cover topics including the distinction between service animals, therapy animals, emotional support animals, and pets; which animals must be allowed; what the requirements are for the different categories of animals; courses of action that are recommended versus mandatory; and how to mitigate between the ADA’s requirements and the concerns for other individuals in the office (e.g. allergies, distractions, phobias). Other topics may be included in addition to those provided in the description.
Speaker: Robin Cross
