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 Cyclical Effects of the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Program
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report presents an analysis of the effect of the unemployment insurance program as an automatic stabilizer and of recent changes in that effect. The report discusses the theoretical reasons that would enable the UI program to stabilize, to some extent, the business cycle; then presents some previous empirical evidence of this effect. It reviews the empirical literature concerning the ability of UI to act as a stabilizer. The report describes the methodology that is used to estimate the effect of UI and discusses the results of the estimation.
