Accomodating my request
In the case of a service animal, the appropriate documentation might be from whoever trained the service animal.The goal of an employer is to understand why the service animal is needed and what it does for the person.When an employee with a disability requests to use a service animal at work, you have the right to request documentation or demonstration of the need for the service animal (when the need is not obvious) and that the service animal is appropriately trained and will not disrupt the workplace.However, this documentation may not be available from a healthcare provider so you may need to consider other sources for the documentation.Sport and recreation contributes to the health and wellbeing of all people and helps break down the barriers that once stopped people with disability from participating.I feel that Physically challenged people should also be able participate in sports, being physically challenged or disabled shouldn't keep them from doing what they enjoy doing or what they want to do.
In other cases, you may want to offer to demonstrate how the service animal behaves in the workplace.
However, employers need to be aware that documentation may not always be from a doctor or some other health care professional.
In some cases, the documentation should come from the appropriate provider of a service.
The employer also has the right to require that the service animal be trained to be in a workplace and capable of functioning appropriately in the work environment.
An employee who trains his or her own service animal can be asked to document or demonstrate that the service animal is in fact appropriately trained and will not disrupt the workplace.
