The Equality Act 2010 sets out a definition of disability, which must be met for an individual to be protected from disability discrimination. Where an individual meets the definition of disability, the employer has a duty to make reasonable adjustments to enable him or her to overcome disadvantages in the workplace.
An employee will be disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that affects the ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. The adverse effect on this ability must be substantial and long term.
