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 :
  Analysis of the WIA Substate Allocation Formulas
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report examines the formulas that states use to allocate funds to local workforce investment areas under the Workforce Investment Act Title I adult, dislocated worker, and youth programs.  The report presents current allocation formulas and identifies several key concerns with the formulas.  It also describes the results of simulations conducted to examine both how allocations are currently made and how the amounts allocated to local areas would change under several alternative formulas.  The report concludes with recommendations to consider when contemplating modifications to the formulas.
