Executive Order 13891 requires agencies to finalize regulations that formalize their processes for issuing and using guidance. On August 28, 2020, the Department published its Promoting Regulatory Openness through Good Guidance (PRO Good Guidance) Final Rule.  A fact sheet about the rule is also available.

 

Under the Department’s new Rule on Guidance, the Department will publish a quarterly list of guidance issued, modified, or withdrawn. View the list of guidance documents issued or modified in the 4th quarter of fiscal year 2020.

 

The contents of these documents do not have the force and effect of law and are not meant to bind the public in any way, except as authorized by law or incorporated into a contract, cooperative agreement, or grant. These documents are intended only to provide clarity to the public regarding existing requirements under the law or agency policies. DOL may not cite, use, or rely on any guidance that is not posted on this site, except to establish historical facts.

Executive Order 13891, Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents, was issued by the President on October 9, 2019. To increase public access to and awareness of guidance documents, the Executive Order requires all federal agencies to establish and maintain a single, searchable, indexed database that contains links to all guidance documents. The Code of Federal Regulations and the Federal Register, which are not maintained by the Department, also include some of the Department’s interpretations of law and similar material.

To petition for withdrawal or modification of a particular guidance document, email the Department of Labor.
