FMLA and meaning of disability
According to FMLA disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or
more of the major life activities of an individual. The definition of disability is used for FMLA
purposes as part of the determination of whether an individual who is 18 years of age or older is a son
or daughter. In order to take FMLA leave to care for a son or daughter who is 18 years of age or older,
the adult child must have a disability and be incapable of self-care due to that disability.
