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

Local Official’s Guide to Economic Adjustments: DoD OEA Publications Include “Workforce Transitions” and “Business Transitions”
Nov 13, 2013

The Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) within the Department of Defense has posted an advisory on the Interagency Network of Enterprise Assistance Providers (INEAP) website today regarding the availability of publications that can benefit the execution of regional economic adjustment strategies.

OEA notes:

These publications are framed within the context of job loss due to reductions in Defense spending; however, their themes are broadly applicable. They are intended to guide local leaders and their staff through the process of organizing, planning and carrying out regional economic adjustment strategies. The three shorter guides provide an overview of the organizing and planning process, approaches to assisting small and medium-size firms, and strategies for coordinating worker transitions. The larger guide covers these themes in greater depth. All emphasize the importance of local leadership and starting early.

Other groupings of content can be found under these headings on the OEA webpages:
