The company I work changed a policy concerning pets

Customer Question

The company I work for has changed a policy concerning pets at work. 9 years ago the I asked my then line manager if it was ok to bring a dog to work, the answer was yes, I then purchased a dog and have been bringing her to work ever since. They now say the policy change means I can longer do this, I contacted our HR department and they have said there is nothing I can do about it as its not contractual and just a policy change. I am saying it was a verbal contract with my then line manager and as it has gone on for 9 years it is customer practise, where do I stand /
