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 :
  Linkages Between TAA, One-Stop Career Center Partners, and Economic Development Agencies
Subtitle :
  A Report Prepared As Part of the Evaluation of the Trade Adjustment Assistance Act

Abstract :

This report is based on site visits conducted from mid-2005 to mid-2006 to 41 One-Stop Career Centers and the state-level offices in the 19 states in which the centers are located.  The report, part of a longer-term project to conduct a national net-impact evaluation of the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program, describes the linkages that the TAA program has established with its One-Stop Career Center partners and economic development agencies.


In many states and local One-Stop Career Centers, the TAA program has developed strong and extensive linkages with Employment Services, the Unemployment Insurance program, and the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Dislocated Worker program.  These linkages are in evidence at the state level as well as at local One-Stop Career Centers and in state-local efforts such as Rapid Response.  Evidence suggests that strong linkages with these partners, particularly with WIA, lead to service delivery that is better coordinated and can improve participants’ access to the services and supports they need to obtain suitable re-employment.  By contrast, linkages are weaker with other partners of the One-Stop delivery system, including Vocational Rehabilitation and veterans’ workforce programs, possibly because only a few TAA participants need or are eligible for the services these partners provide.  Linkages with economic development agencies are also fairly weak.
