ADA Webinar Feb.16th: Home, Community or Travel the Rules for Service Animals are not the same

Service animals are defined and viewed differently under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and the Air Carriers Access Act (ACAA). Join us and learn how each of these laws provides protections for individuals with disabilities. Learn what businesses, governments, employers, airlines, and housing providers are or are not required to do. Become educated on permissible questions and/or permissible documentation a covered entity may ask or require from an individual with a disability.
