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

Update on Interim Final Regulations and Opportunity for Public Comment
Jan 6, 1999
Jan. 6, 1999. Development of the interim final regulations for the Workforce Investment Act proceeds with every expectation that they will be published for public comment in February 1999. Since September we have received hundreds of comments, including comments on the preview regulations. Each comment was carefully considered in the drafting of the interim final regulations.

The public comment period on the interim final regulations will commence upon their publication in the Federal Register; any comments received now will be considered in the drafting of the final regulations. Comments may be sent to the Implementation Task Force e-mail address: wia98tf@doleta.gov

Just as with the preview regulations, there will be opportunity for public comment on the interim final regulations. Check this website periodically for further information.
