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 :
  Evaluation of Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services System: Interim Report
Release Date :
Abstract :
  In this report, we present our findings from Phase I of a four-year study of the design, implementation, and operation of worker profiling and reemployment services systems, an initiative legislated by Public Law 103-152. This Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) initiative essentially modifies the current unemployment compensation system allowing it to deal with an ever-increasing segment of the unemployed-the dislocated worker. Through the changes engendered by the WPRS initiatives, the UI system will identify dislocated workers who re at risk of exhausting their unemployment insurance (UI) benefits and links them to appropriate reemployment services in a timely fashion. This two-pronged early intervention strategy is intended to assist identified UI claimants to quickly return to productive, stable employment.
