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

WIPS Edit Checks

WIPS validates files uploaded for three types of edit checks, Duplicate Rules, Logical Rules and Valid Values, to ensure information accuracy of each field according to the PIRL.

Duplicate Rules

Duplicate Rules ensure the validity of multiple records on the same individual. Duplicate errors are displayed in WIPS in the Total Duplicates column in the EDIT CHECK RESULTS tab.

Logical Rules

Logical Rules are analytical validations to ensure data is accurately entered, including fields that are required which is typically dependent on the data entered in other fields. Logical errors are displayed in WIPS in the Total Errors column in the EDIT CHECK RESULTS tab.

Valid Values

Valid Values verify the input of each field of data entered for format, length and in some cases value input. Valid Value errors are displayed in WIPS in the Total Errors column in the EDIT CHECK RESULTS tab.
