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

Abstract :
  The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of UI work search rules, the characteristics of claimants, and labor-market conditions on the work-search behavior of claimants (which is an intermediate outcome of interest) and on the length of UI claims spells, the job-finding success of claimants, and UI payment error rates (which are the ultimate outcomes of interest).
