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

Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) Information Collection Review (ICR) Federal Register Notices (FRN)

The purpose of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), which governs information collections, is to minimize paperwork, ensure public benefit, improve Government programs, improve the quality and use of Federal information to strengthen decision making, accountability, and openness in Government and society; and much, much more.

Notice: Sixty Day Comment Period
As part of the process to invite public comments on information collection requests (ICRs), the PRA requires that the agency publish a notice in the Federal Register regarding each request that notifies the public of the sixty-day comment period. Once that comment period is closed, ETA reviews and summarizes and provides a response to each comment in A.8 of its supporting statement. Comments may lead to improvements in the information collection forms.

Notice: Thirty Day Comment Period
ETA then submits the ICR to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which administers the PRA, and a notice in the Federal Register is published to notify the public of the request and to give a final thirty-day comment opportunity.
