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

About the Office of Workforce Investment

The Office of Workforce Investment (OWI) is responsible for implementing an integrated national workforce investment system that supports economic growth and provides workers with the information, advice, job search assistance, supportive services, and training in demand industries and occupations needed to get and keep good jobs. Our work also helps employers acquire skilled workers. OWI provides national leadership, oversight, policy guidance, and technical assistance to the workforce investment system authorized under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; works collaboratively with other Federal agencies and partners and stakeholders, the continuum of education, and state and local governments to promote a strong economy by building a prepared and competitive workforce; and manages its investments strategically to ensure high performance, greater public accountability, and service quality. OWI provides oversight of governance and service delivery for programs delivered through the One-Stop delivery system, all of which are designed to assist communities, educators, businesses, and job seekers (e.g., adults, dislocated and transitioning workers, disadvantaged youth, veterans, older workers, individuals with disabilities, migrant and seasonal farmworkers, Indians and Native Americans, and others) compete in a changing global economy.
