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

Department of Veterans Affairs - Goodwill Partnership
Sep 27, 2001
Veterans who need job training and placement will have new opportunities to enter the workforce under a national agreement announced this week between the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Goodwill Industries International, Inc. Under the new program, called Transitional Work Experience (TWE), participating local Goodwill Industries agencies will hire formerly homeless veterans, as well as veterans participating in VA's mental health programs, who are enrolled in VA's Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) programs.
