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

National Study: Current Business Engagement Practices under WIOA
Jan 23, 2017
This confidential survey is part of a national research study funded by Business U, Inc. to determine the current methods that the workforce development system stakeholders and system partners (comprised of workforce development, economic development, education, and business-facing organizations) are using to meet the requirements and expectations for business engagement as articulated through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

Participating organizations will receive a final report of findings and recommendations to support:

  • Strategic planning with your business engagement team.
  • Identification of business engagement benchmarks.
  • Regional business engagement strategies and partnerships.

Each state that successfully engages at least 50% of its local workforce development boards, contractors, and partners to participate in the study will receive a customized report specific to business engagement practices in their state.
