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 :
  Think Entrepreneurs: A Call to Action
Subtitle :
  Integrating Entrepreneurship into the Public Workforce System Throughout America
Release Date :
  January 22, 2010
Abstract :

The Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education analyzed current entrepreneurship operations and policies in the public workforce investment system, and collected information on ways Workforce Investment Boards and One-Stop Career Centers currently provide support for developing entrepreneurs. Utilizing this information, the Consortium developed an online clearinghouse and this report to broadly share best practices on entrepreneurship activities within the workforce investment.

Specifically, the report encourages the workforce investment system to make entrepreneurial/self-employment training opportunities available for people interested in self-employment under Title I of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. The report includes recommendations for dissemination opportunities for clarifying ETA entrepreneurship policies, examples of what the field is doing in the area of entrepreneurship, and provides descriptions of how to implement entrepreneurship training strategies.
