Withdrawn Technical Assistance and Guidance Documents

Withdrawal of Nine Technical Assistance Documents

December 21, 2017—The Department of Justice has withdrawn and, where applicable, removed from the below-listed technical assistance documents. Each document is outdated and does not fully reflect current law or has been replaced by a more up-to-date document. Withdrawal of a guidance document does not change covered entities’ legal responsibilities, as reflected in the ADA, its implementing regulations, and other binding legal requirements and judicial precedent. The Department will continue to fully and fairly enforce all laws within its jurisdiction, including the ADA.
