To the Dogs! September 25, 2019 A disabled bar patron alleged he was discriminated against because of his disability when he refused to move to a designated area with his service animal. Commission staff investigated and found substantial evidence of discrimination. The bar had a policy requiring members with service animals to sit only within designated areas of its facility, with no exceptions. The investigation failed to produce evidence the policy was due to a legitimate safety requirement, concerns about the service animal’s behavior or control, or concerns that the animal posed a direct threat. The Commission reached a two-party agreement with respondent, in which respondent agreed to undergo training and adopt an anti-discrimination policy.
