QUESTION: Recently, I broke my leg and I’ll be in a cast and walking with crutches for several weeks. Am I covered by the ACAA?

ANSWER: Yes. The ACAA and part 382 apply to individuals who have a physical or mental impairment that, on a permanent or temporary basis, substantially limits a major life activity. Since your temporary impairment limits the major life activity of walking, you are considered a qualified individual with a disability. Therefore, you are covered by the ACAA and Part 382. [Sec. 382.5]
