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

The Common Information Reporting System (CRIS)

ETA and the Kansas Department of Commerce have a Memorandum of Understanding that enables ETA's national program grantees access to wage records through the Wage Record Interchange System and the Federal Employment Data Exchange System in order to calculate the common measures. This arrangement is the Common Reporting Information System (CRIS).

The following programs may obtain CRIS data:
  • Indian and Native American Program (INAP);
  • Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP); Registered Apprenticeship (RA);
  • National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP);
  • High Growth Job Training Initiative (HGJTI);
  • Community-Based Job Training Grants Initiative (CBJTG); and,
  • Job Corp.
