Service Animals and the ADA

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Description

Many people with disabilities use service animals to assist them in a wide variety of tasks. Often employers, businesses and governmental entities have questions about their responsibilities under the ADA and legal limitations regarding permissible inquiries. People with disabilities need to understand their rights and responsibilities as well. This session will review recent case decisions addressing service animal issues, as well as relevant federal regulations and guidance, including the new Department of Justice regulations.
