Disability Discrimination

How is a disability defined within the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?

There are three parts to the definition of a disability in the ADA. The first is that a disability is as an impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. The second is that a disability is one in which there is a record of an employee having such an impairment. The third part of the definition is that the person is “regarded” as having a disability.
