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

Research Conferences

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) research conferences focus on issues related to trends, challenges and impacts of the macro-economy to workforce investment. It also focuses on significant changes in workforce investment, workforce competitiveness in the global economy, changing business requirements, workforce security in our new economy, and major policy options to increase productivity by meeting the skill needs of business and promoting economic opportunities for the United States workforce. It is an opportunity for ETA and other interested parties to keep abreast of new research in the workforce development field.

The Research Showcase offers a unique opportunity to meet the authors of influential workforce studies featuring prominent researchers from Urban Institute, Mathematica Policy Research, Social Policy Research, and other leading research organizations.

Biennial National Research Conference

ETA has previously sponsored the Biennial National Research Conference to address a range of policy and program issues and document promising program practices. The research conference served as an important source of information in the development of the ETA Five Year Research Plan. In an effort to provide a broader distribution of ETA's research findings and products, the format for Research Conference has been modified and is now presented annually at ETA's Workforce Innovations Conference as the Research Showcase.
