The Department of Labor is undertaking a detailed and comprehensive review of guidance documents issued by Department agencies to determine whether such guidance aligns with the law and Administration policy and otherwise serves an appropriate and useful purpose. Guidance which is outdated, superseded, invalid, unhelpful, confusing, redundant, outside the Department's appropriate role, or contrary to law or policy is being rescinded or modified. This process is ongoing and this website and agency websites reflect decisions to retain guidance to date. The Department welcomes input from the public regarding guidance that should be retained, rescinded, or modified.

 

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.

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.

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

Petitions to Modify or Withdraw a DOL regulation may also be submitted by mail at the address below. Petitions should identify the specific guidance document by name and include your reason(s) for requesting withdrawal or modification.
