In the Viewpoint entitled “Innovations of the Americans With Disabilities Act: Confronting Disability Discrimination in Employment” published in the June 9, 2015, issue of JAMA,1 the article should have stated more clearly that the pre–Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) requirements for establishing coverage under the “regarded as” part of the definition are no longer required under the ADAAA. Under the ADAAA, an individual is regarded as having a disability if he or she has been subject to discrimination “because of an actual or perceived physical or mental impairment whether or not the impairment limits or is perceived to limit a major life activity.” This article was corrected online.
