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

Title :
  Workplace Literacy and the Nation's Unemployed Workers
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The 1990 Department of Labor Survey of Workplace Literacy assessed the workplace literacy levels of eligible applicants for JTPA training and of jobseekers in the Employment Service/Unemployment Insurance programs. Using the survey data, which included workplace literacy proficiency scores and data concerning various socio-economic and personal characteristics of the respondents, this study analyzed the relationship between the workplace literacy and labor market performance of the unemployed workers in these programs on one hand and the determinants of workplace literacy on the other.
