Discrimination Of The Disabled

Discrimination of the disabled occurs when an employee or applicant is treated differently on the basis of a disability condition. It can also happen when an organization fails to make reasonable accommodation for qualified disabled employees and applicants who are able to meet the requirements of the position through reasonable assistance or modification.

A disabled person is defined as one who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of such personís major life activities, has a record of such impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment.

Physical or mental impairment means any physiological disorder or condition, cosmetic disfigurement, or anatomical loss affecting one or more of the following body systems: neurological, musculoskeletal, special sense organs, cardiovascular, reproductive, digestive, genitourinary, hemic and lymphatic, skin and endocrine, or any mental or psychological disorder, such as mental retardation, organic brain syndrome, emotional or mental illness, and specific learning disabilities.

Major life activities include (but are not limited to) functions such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, standing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working.

Has a record of such an impairment, means has a history of, or has been classified (or misclassified) as having a mental or physical impairment that substantially limits major life activities.

Certain disabilities are defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as "targeted disabilities". Generally, individuals with these disabilities have greater difficulty being hired.
