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.

Title :
  Employer Layoff and Recall Practices
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report on employer layoff and recall practices is part of a continuing effort by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) to explore the needs of dislocated workers, i.e., those who have been laid off from their jobs. It attempts to answer the questions, ?When workers are laid off, how many more are recalled, and, of those recalled, how many choose to return to the employer that laid them off?? It is also an attempt to gather additional information, from an employer?s perspective, regarding the planning and implementation of layoffs, including the employer?s expectations prior to the onset of the layoff and the method and timing of providing layoff information to workers.
