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

SUBJECT Availability of “The Nine Best Practices of Highly Effective SCSEP Projects”

1.   PURPOSE: To announce the availability, and to transmit a copy, of a new technical assistance guide:  The Nine Best Practices of Highly Effective SCSEP Projects.

2.   BACKGROUND: The National Council on the Aging was commissioned to develop a publication showcasing some of the significant ways SCSEP projects around the country are succeeding, and some of their innovative collaborative activities and strategies that are working well. America's workforce is growing older and becoming even more diverse. By 2005, over 30 percent more persons age 55 or older will be at work than in the 1990's, and over 30 percent more older workers will be unemployed. In the new economy, workers' opportunities and work systems are changing. Many thousands across the country need help to keep in step, and build skills and confidence.

This publication should be thought of not as a blueprint, but rather to help trigger your unique strategies. Our hope is it will be a source of inspiration, information, and do-able ideas. Our interest is not to displace what is now working, but rather to encourage trying out “lessons learned from the field” that may lead in new directions. Some ideas are sustained activities that require a long-range outlook. Others are more immediately applicable. The goal is to find the seed of an idea, then adapt it or build on it. Pick and choose to fit your needs. Try out an idea for a trial period to see if it works.

3.        REPORT AVAILABILITY: Electronic copies of “The Nine Best Practices” are available at the Division of Older Worker Programs (DOWP) website, http://wdsc.doleta.gov/seniors/ under “WHAT'S NEW.” Hard copies of the report may be ordered from David Richardson at DOWP: fax number (202) 693-3817 or e-mail drichardson@doleta.gov.

4.        INQUIRIES: Questions should be directed to your Federal Representative at (202) 693-3842.
