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 :
  Skills and Tasks for Jobs: A SCANS Report for America 2000
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) was established in February 1990 to examine the demands of the work place and to determine whether the current and future workforce is capable of meeting those demands. Commission members included 31 representatives from the nation's schools, businesses, unions and government. The Commission issued its first report, "What Work Requires of Schools," in June, 1991. This report told educators and employers what students and workers need to know and be able to do in order to succeed in the work place. This kind of information is especially vital today, when more than half of our young people leave school without the basic skills required to find and hold a good job.
