Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to recognize and address allergies and fragrance sensitivity in the workplace and comply with reasonable accommodation obligations under the ADA.


 

“He’s my therapy dog; he’s my emotional support.” It seems that nowadays more and more people have therapy animals to help them cope with everyday stresses of life and to lessen anxiety and depression.

Are such animals service animals? If not, what’s the difference between an emotional support and a service animal? Does an organization have obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) with respect to one but not the other as they pertain to employees, clients, customers, or other third parties?

Questions like these abound, and it’s time to take a close look at the issue, so your organization is well prepared to deal with requests for animals to be inside of your workplace, even in cases when it’s not immediately apparent that an individual has a disability.

Use this on-demand webinar led by Attorneys Rowan Leathers and Brent Siler of Butler Snow LLP that will explore the extent to which ADA protections apply when an employee, client, customer, or another third-party requests to have an animal by his or her side in your workplace.

You’ll learn:

  • The difference between a service and an emotional support animal and why it’s important to know the difference
  • Examples of how the ADA may require you to accommodate animals at work
  • Examples of when an organization may not be able to accommodate having a service animal in the workplace
  • Creative alternatives to accommodating a person’s disability when you have a no-animal policy in place
  • What to do if an employee is allergic to a service animal in your workplace
