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

Contingency Planning Options for State Plans under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998
Jun 14, 2000
This guidance letter outlines the steps to be taken in the event that a State is not prepared to fully implement the required provisions for the Workforce Investment Act by July 1, 2000 - the date which JTPA will be repealed. These steps must be balanced so that States are held accountable to statutory and regulatory requirements and the principles of WIA while ensuring that customers of the workforce investment system continue to have access to the WIA services.
