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

ETA Summarizes Roles and Responsibilities of the Public Workforce System in Tracking, Offering Employment Services, and Reporting Outcomes of Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) Participants
Oct 11, 2012

The Employment and Training Administration has issued Training and Employment Guidance Letter 08-12.

This TEGL informs the public workforce system about the required process for outreaching to and tracking outcomes of Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) participants. The TEGL outlines how the Department of Labor will make available VRAP participant information to the public workforce system and procedures for American Job Center (formerly One-Stop Career Center) staff to offer VRAP participants employment assistance upon program completion or termination as required by the VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011.

The TEGL also provides reporting specifications for reporting public workforce system outreach activities and the employment outcomes of VRAP participants.
