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

National Longitudinal Study of Unemployment Insurance Recipients: ETA Publishes Thirty-Day Notice
Feb 25, 2014
The Employment and Training Administration has published the thirty day notice today in the February 10, 2014 Federal Register regarding the agency’s interest in conducting a national longitudinal study of unemployment insurance (UI) recipients that will help policymakers and program administrators gain information about the experiences of UI recipients. The study will examine the extent to which the UI program reduces recipients' financial hardships, the ways in which job search and reemployment expectations change during and after benefit collection, and customer satisfaction levels with the UI program. The study will address research questions in six broad topic areas:

(1) adequacy of UI benefits, (2) reemployment expectations, (3) job search, (4) total UI benefit usage, (5) employment outcomes, and (6) UI recipients' satisfaction with the UI program.

Comments are due by March 12, 2014. The sixty-day notice was published on July 22, 2013.
