There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Employment and Training Administration's Compliance Assistance

The Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (ETA) strives to provide its customers - businesses, workers, and workforce professionals - with clear and accessible information on how to comply with Federal employment laws and guidance. ETA administers two programs that fall under the Secretary's Compliance Assistance Initiative:

  1. The Foreign Labor Certification program
  2. The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act
While ETA administers these programs, our agency does not have enforcement authority for them. Most of the Foreign Labor Certification enforcement is handled through the Department of Labor's Employment Standards Administration, Division of Wage and Hour, or the Department of Homeland Security. The WARN Act is enforced through the judicial system.
