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 :
  Application of the Unemployment Insurance System Work Test and Nonmonetary Eligibility Standards
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This study investigates the influences of state laws, regulations, and procedures of nonmonetary eligibility. Our objective is to identify practices that are particularly effective in detecting ineligible claimants, given the variation in the definitions of ineligibility. To the extent that we succeed in establishing these ?best practices,? agencies may be able to monitor their procedures more effectively and possibly modify them to meet their own objectives. More specifically, the patterns observed in the analysis may suggest how certain practices can help state agencies (1) minimize the extent to which claimants violate nonmonetary eligibility rules and (2) maximize the ability of agencies to detect violation when they occur and to reduce or deny benefits accordingly.
