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

Release Date :

Abstract :

Section 171 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 requires the Secretary of Labor to submit, every two years, a plan that describes demonstration and pilot, multiservice, research and multistate projects that focus on priorities for the Department of Labor concerning employment and training for the five-year period following the plan.  This plan provides a strategic vision for research efforts based on input from States, localities, and other interested parties. The Five-Year Research and Evaluation Strategic Plan for 2012-2017 is comprised of five chapters: 1) Role of the plan in informing the decision-making process for carrying out research and evaluation; 2) Significant recently completed research and evaluation projects conducted in the years from 2005-2010; 3) Current and ongoing research and evaluation efforts; 4) Recommendations for five high priority topic areas for research; and 5) Summary of the role of the plan.
