Can an employer ask if I have an Emotional Support Animal?

While searching for a job, no one may ask you if you have an emotional support animal.

Moreover, there is no registry that lists that you are currently living with an emotional support animal. This makes it almost impossible for them to know if you have one or not. Thus having an emotional support animal when looking for a job shouldn’t pose a problem at all.

Companies and employer cannot ask about your medical history when interviewing your for a job. Your medical history is your private information and does not have to be shared with anyone. If you suffer from a mental illness, you are not required to bring up this information to a prospective employer.

Should I take my Emotional Support Animal to work?

The real answer is “it depends”.

Emotional support animals are not given the same freedoms and privileges that service animals have. However, they do have special access rights to flights or public housing facilities where they otherwise wouldn’t be allowed.

Emotional Support Animals are not required public access to office buildings or restaurants. This means that you may not be able to take your emotional support animal to work if your employer will not grant special access.

If your problem is quite severe, there are a few companies that might be accommodating. These companies may even allow your ESA to come with you to the office. Although it is not required by law, employers are becoming more and more supportive of their staffing improving their mental health.

In such cases, the company will consider what kind of animal your emotional support animal is. They should be accepting of your emotional support animal. That is, of course, your emotional support animal to get a fully-grown grizzly, in which case your ESA will likely not be granted special access.
