Are you referring to the Americans with Disabilities Act?
MHK wrote: "Accordingly, my major problem with such a sweeping and reckless attempt at gaining market share is that as a PADI professional you are precluded under federal law from picking and choosing who is allwed to enroll in your class."
- One must meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements of a "qualified individual with a disability, who can, without reasonable accommodations perform the "essential functions" of a job".
There are three different groups of individuals who are protected under the Act: (1) a "qualified individual" with a physical or mental impairment that "substantially limits a major life activity"; (2) a person who has a "record of" disability; or (3) a person who is "regarded as" having a disability.
MHK, How did you find 10 year olds taking scuba lessons fitting in this group?
