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

Hire Vets Campaign

"Hire Vets First" Campaign

The Department of Labor and the President's National Hire Veterans Committee seek support for the "Hire Vets First" campaign. The campaign will strive to heighten employer awareness about the employability of veterans and will refer employers interested in hiring veterans to local One-Stop Career Centers.

A fact sheet and an Event Guide on the "Hire Vets First" campaign is available for distribution, as well as a sample letter that has been sent to all levels of the public workforce investment system and its veteran-focused partners.
