Fifth, the ADA Amendments Act makes it clear that, contrary to court decisions interpreting the ADA, the “regarded as” prong of the disability definition does not require the individual to demonstrate that he or she has, or is perceived to have, an impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. In keeping with the mandates of Executive Order 13563, and in order to promote consistency in the interpretation of the ADA Amendments Act, the Department and the EEOC held four joint public hearings prior to the publication of the EEOC’s final title I ADA Amendments Act rule. In addition, the Department is proposing to revise its ADA title II and title III regulations in such a manner that, wherever possible, the regulatory language is the same as the language adopted by the EEOC in its final rule.
