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

Joint DOL/EDU Memo: Application of FERPA to Reporting for Eligible Training Providers under Title I of WIA
Jan 24, 2001
The purpose of this memorandum is to address concerns that have been raised by some States regarding the effect of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) on the administration of the eligible training provider provisions of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA). As this memorandum describes, the performance information required under section 122 may be obtained by entities administering WIA in a manner that is consistent with the requirements of FERPA.
