Customer Question

I work in the oilfield with a service company and I've been bringing my dog to work for over 3 years now with this company. I am now being told I cant bring my dog to work with me anymore. My supervisor says that they have been getting complaints and that she is a distraction. I don't believe that is true. She is a smaller than average Boston terrier that sleeps in the truck most of the day while I am doing my work on location. I normally let her out of the truck to pee and poop before arriving on location but there are times when I will let her out on location. If someone arrives I normally put her back in the truck. My job can be very unproductive at times so there is a lot of waiting around. I find I need brain stimulation which she helps with while it is unproductive. I am emotionally attached to my dog and although I am undiagnosed she helps with depression. I also don't have anyone to take care of my dog while I am at work because I work longer hours at times. Is there a law protecting me from not being able to bring my dog to work? Is there anything I can do to keep being able to bring my dog to work? I'm trying to find out if I signed something unknowingly that says I will no longer be able to bring my dog to work. I'll have to get back to you on that but hopefully you can help me out with this so far.

I am sorry to hear this. Are you in a union?
