Also, they are not allowed to question you about your disabilities under HHPA laws. You are not required to tell them anything. The only thing that I would tell them is you have a service dog for a reason and you have to keep the dog under control. You don't even have to show the dog's certifications and they aren't allowed to demand it.

Ugh! I feel terrible, and I'm not sure if it's because it's close to "that time of the month" or if I'm expecting. It's OK either way, I just want to start feeling better! I've felt like this for a week now!

And I have 4 mornings in a row, (including today, starting yesterday), where I have to get up really early. I'm not good at getting up early to begin with, and if I don't get enough sleep it can give me an upset stomach. >.< On top of how crummy I already feel, this is torture! :C This week sucks.

When an employee requests permission to bring his or her assistance dog to work as a reasonable accommodation for a disability, the employer should recognize that the only basis for denial of this request is:

(1) the employee is not a qualified person with a disability as defined by the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, or state law;

(2) the assistance dog/service animal does not meet the definition of a service animal in the ADA or other relevant law;

(3) the presence of the service animal would place an undue burden on the employer; or,

(4) the presence of the service animal would interfere with the employer’s ability to conduct business.

In these instances, the burden of proof is on the employer, not the employee.

So basically, they cannot deny you or retaliate against you or you can sue the snot out of them. I had to do some research because I am looking into getting a service dog for my son with his various disabilities.
Yes. I am aware of this. My problem is where your employer needs to have access to all your medical records in order to even consider you having access with your service dog.
Today is not going that great. I may just try bringing her in no questions asked. I have a feeling that, if I take em, my medication may just cause more harm than good today.

That's why I brought up the HHPA laws. They cannot force you to share your medical records. It's against the law.
