The myriad issues surrounding these requests increasingly hound HR professionals at property management companies, who must balance the needs of those who have requested the accommodations, and other employees who may or may not feel comfortable around animals. This webinar will cover the following topics, with an eye toward keeping you out of the doghouse.

Topics:

  • Navigating federal and state accommodation laws impacting service animal requests including the appropriate supporting documentation that is necessary
  • Service animals vs. support animals

  • Managing employee compliance with service animal behavior expectations
