How do the Equal Employment Opportunity regulations define “disability”?

Equal Employment Opportunity

Under 29 C.F.R. 30.2, “disability” means, with respect to an individual: (a) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities of such individual; (b) a record of such an impairment; or (c) being regarded as having such an impairment.  This definition, as with other terms defined in the regulations related to disability, are taken directly from title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended.
