- In employment law, the result of an injury that impairs the physical and/or mental ability of a person to perform his or her normal work, apparently for the remainder of the person's life. Under workers' compensation laws (covering on-the-job injuries), when the condition has become stable, the degree of permanent disability is established by medical assessment and compensation is determined.
