Is a Lifting Restriction A Disability Covered by the ADA?

A lifting restriction can be a disability covered by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).  Can be does not mean is. For a lifting restriction to be a disability covered by the ADA, the lifting restriction has to be sufficiently severe and the lifting restriction must be significant, meaning that lifting must be significantly more difficult than it is for the average person. 

Remember: a temporary lifting restriction can still be a disability covered by the ADA as previously discussed: Lexington Disability Lawyer: Temporary Condition Can Be A Disability.
