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.

Department of Labor Grant to Assist Washington Workers Affected by Layoffs at Boeing

The Department of Labor has announced a $2,205,753 National Emergency Grant to assist about 645 workers affected by layoffs at The Boeing Company in Seattle, Washington.

Awarded to the Washington State Employment Security Department, the grant will be operated by the Workforce Development Council of Snohomish County. Eligible workers will have access to training and a broad range of support services, in conjunction with other services they may receive as a result of their eligibility for Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits. The grant and the TAA program will provide these dislocated workers with re-employment services they need to successfully find jobs in their area.
