Review of 1988 Opinion Concerning the Applicability of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act to Individuals Infected with HIV: Memorandum for Stephen R. Colgate, Assistant Attorney General for Administration [July 8, 1994] [open pdf - 39KB]
"You have asked us whether an Office of Legal Counsel [OLC] Memorandum of September 27, 1988, reprinted at 12 Op. O.L.C. 264 (1988) and entitled 'Application of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act to HIV-Infected Individuals,' accurately reflects the state of the law on this issue. That memorandum concluded that Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, 29 U.S.C. § 794, bars discrimination against individuals infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus ('HIV'), whether or not the infection has resulted in illness. […] We have reviewed the 1988 O.L.C. Memorandum, and have concluded that it accurately describes the duties imposed by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act with respect to individuals infected with HIV. We do, however, have a few comments to update the analysis of that Memorandum."
