ADA 30th Anniversary: Navigating Legal Protections for Assistance Animals

Service and emotional support animals provide important therapeutic benefit and physical assistance to persons with disabilities. Often though, there is uncertainty about the varying degrees of legal protection afforded to them. Not all assistance animals are equally protected under law. When can someone be accompanied by their assistance animal in public places? Are assistance animals really different from pets? Can employers ban assistance animals at work? We will answer these and related questions during a workshop on the Americans with Disabilities Act. We will explore the differences between emotional support animals and service animals both at home and at work. This event is presented by Disability Rights NC.

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, individuals with disabilities requiring disability-related reasonable accommodations should contact the Equal Opportunity and Equity unit of the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity at either equalopportunity@ncsu.edu or 919-513.0574.  Requests can be served more effectively if notice is provided at least five days before the event.  Closed captioning will be provided for the event.
