Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome a "disability" covered by the Americans With Disabilities Act?  Yes answered the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in its recent decision in EEOC v. Chevron Phillips.  The court ruled that the employee presented sufficient evidence that her Chronic Fatigue Syndrome posed a substantial limitation for her in the major life activities of caring for herself, thinking and sleeping.

For a medical condition to be a "disability" covered by the Americans With Disabilities Act it must pose a substantial limitation on a major life activity.
