Webinar Description

Service dogs (and service horses) have a long and valued history of performing daily activities of living for people with disabilities. However, many more animals are now appearing in public places. Ducks on planes, dogs in the grocery store and horses walking down city sidewalks. While service dogs/horses are respected and certain pets have always been welcome in the local hardware store, it’s still surprising to see a pig sniffing through the grocery store or a dog as your seatmate on a plane. As an employer, it’s important to understand what is the definition of a service dog vs. a support animal vs. a pet. You will also need to establish and enforce practical policies regarding permitting animals in your workplace.

This webinar will help you understand the differences between service animals and support animals, and understand your legal obligations regarding under what circumstances you will need to accommodate an employee who wants or needs to bring an animal to work. The webinar will also discuss best guidelines for setting up a Bring Your Pets To Work policy.
