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

The Federal Employment Data Exchange System (FEDES)


As of February 2018, the Federal Employment Data Exchange System (FEDES) is temporarily suspended while the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) reassesses the feasibility of FEDES.

The Federal Employment Data Exchange System (FEDES) is an initiative that provides Federal and state agencies with an effective way to include Federal employment information in support of performance and evaluation reports required by Federal and state regulations. Quarterly data exchange is supported between all 50 states and two Federal agencies: the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Department of Defense. There are currently 41 states and the District of Columbia participating in FEDES.


The Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration awarded funds to the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (DLLR) for the purpose of developing FEDES. The Jacob France Institute is responsible for the technical operations of the initiative, while DLLR oversees the administrative management of FEDES. In order to participate in FEDES, a state must have a signed data sharing agreement with DLLR. For additional information, please visit: http://www.ubalt.edu/jfi/fedes/
