"Is that request for the doggy on the desk really a service animal and other questions on reasonable accommodations"
Presentation covers Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act including; reasonable accommodations, appropriate disability and medical inquires, definition of disability, disability specific information and employer obligation under the law. Is it always ADA -- or no Way? Can HR or business managers be sure they are following ADA requirements for service animals, fragrance in the workplace or other issues that conflict with other employee accommodations. Questions such as: If an employee has a valid service dog which is a pit-bull; does the home owner have to allow the dog in the facility along with the repair man will be answered. Is there such a thing as an "emotional support" animal?
What You Will Learn:
- Definitions of service animals and qualified disability
- HR Managers -- what to ask -- it is not always Americans with Disability Act (ADA) or no way, there is a middle ground
- Understand the federal and state laws when it come to accommodations
