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

Budget Process

The Federal Budget Process

The process in which the federal budget is proposed, debated and eventually made law involves a specific timeline. This timeline follows the fiscal, as opposed to the calendar year. This process is made up of certain steps, that include ETA's budget request to the Department of Labor, DOL's budget request to the Office of Management and Budget, which makes a proposal to the President and Congress, as well as many participants from the Executive and Legislative branches of the Federal government.
