Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504, and a number of state civil rights statutes, post-secondary educational institutions are required to allow disabled students and employees to utilize service animals. However, such animals should be reasonably accommodated only if it allows a student access to the educational programs or other activities of the school or permits an employee to perform his/her job duties.
The introduction of animals into the work and educational environments pose a number of liability and other considerations that schools must take into account when developing policies in this regard and deciding whether such accommodations are eligible to be considered as reasonable accommodations. In this webinar, our expert speaker James P. Evans will help participants identify those issues, reason through them, and develop effective responses in such situations.
