A. Disability Status - Disclosure
1. A disabled person is defined in the Disability Discrimination Act as someone with a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term impact on their ability to carry out day-to-day activities.
The impairment should have lasted or be expected to last 12 months or more. People with hidden conditions e.g. cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, asthma are covered. People with severe disfigurements, people with learning disabilities, people living with HIV/AIDS and people with MS are also covered from the time the symptoms first appear.
People who have had a disability within the definition are protected from discrimination even if they have since recovered e.g. from depression.
