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

ETA Provides Guidance on the Use of Wagner-Peyser Section 7(a) Funds for Intensive Services
Jan 7, 2013
The Employment and Training Administration has issued Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 11-12.

This TEGL addresses the appropriate use of funds authorized under Section 7(A) of the Wagner-Peyser Act for intensive services as defined by the Workforce Investment Act.

The TEGL provides a synopsis of the statute and regulations to which the States must conform. It specifically responds to these questions:

  • How can funds authorized by Section 7(1) of the Wagner-Peyser be used?
  • Must core and intensive services funded by the Wagner-Peyser Act be provided by merit staff?
  • Who makes the decisions about funding for core and intensive services?
  • May States provide training under Section 7(a) of the Wagner-Peyser Act?

The TEGL also provides guidance for aligning WIA and Wagner-Peyser Funded Intensive Services.

Questions on the TEGL can be directed to the appropriate regional office.
