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 :
  The Evaluation of the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program: A Synthesis of Major Findings
Release Date :
  January 18, 2013
Abstract :
  This report summarizes major findings from more than a dozen separate publications of the Evaluation of the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program.  The evaluation, commissioned by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (which is responsible for administration of the TAA program) was designed to document key administrative practices and assess the effectiveness of the TAA program under the 2002 amendment.  The evaluation involved data from multiple sources including two telephone surveys of TAA participants and a statistically matched comparison group; administrative data; and data from site visits conducted in 34 states and more than 100 local offices.  The reports cover implementation of the 2002 and 2009 amendments; linkages with other programs, outreach, case management, characteristics of those eligible for TAA; characteristics of trainees and training programs; estimated impacts of the 2002 program; factors affecting trainee outcomes; and benefits and costs of the 2002 program.
