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 :
  State Financed and Customized Training Programs
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report was prepared by the U.S. Department of Labor¿s Employment and Training Administration and describes the States¿ customized, employer specific training--including current and historical data--for incumbent workers and new hires. As the States prepare to implement the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998, state programs are of particular interest as the Act authorizes the expenditure of federal money for training incumbent workers. Although the ultimate aim of both federal and State programs is to improve the lives of State residents, State programs are employer-centered with employers free to decide whom to train, rather than worker-centered as is the case with federal programs. Consequently, State programs are aimed at individuals somewhat higher on the economic ladder than federal programs and for workers who are already in the workforce who need new skills to get a new job or need skills to retain their existing job.
