Relating To Fair Housing Reasonable Accommodations.

Abstract

Defines "assistance animal" in the context of Hawaii law prohibiting discrimination in real property transactions. Codifies the administrative process in verifying that a person requesting a reasonable accommodation that includes the use of an assistance animal has a disability and the assistance animal is needed to alleviate one or more symptoms of the person's disability. Specifies that possession of a vest or other distinguishing animal garment, tag, or registration document commonly purchased online and purporting to identify an animal as a service animal or assistance animal does not constitute valid verification. Effective 11/1/2022. (HD2)
