Who Let the Dogs (Cats, Miniature Horses, and Mallard Ducks) In: Navigating Service and Emotional Support Animal Accommodations

Webinar Only

Program Overview:

Yes, we said Mallard Ducks. Animal accommodation requests can take a variety of forms and address a broad spectrum of human psychiatric, emotional, and medical needs. Join us for a discussion of how the "animal accommodation" concept continues to expand. Our discussion will address the increasingly complex legal issues raised by these requests under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act.

We will also consider real-life scenarios and practical solutions for addressing these requests from employees and students in higher education institutions.
