This evening, we added a new link in the “Important Government Links” section on the WOTCPlanet.com main page. If you’re viewing the site, the links are listed down the right side of the page, as are other helpful offerings. The latest link is to the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration’s Advisory System (aka “DOL ETA Advisories”). The Department of Labor’s website explains it this way:
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) Advisory system is used to disseminate ETA’s interpretations of Federal laws, procedural, administrative, management, program direction and other information to the states, direct grant recipients and other interested parties.
Yes, it’s very technical information. But some of us need to know the more technical side of things so that we can serve the rest competently.
For an example of the kind of information disseminated by the DOL at this site, look back at my post of March 23, “Final Guidance about Disconnected Youth and Unemployed Veteran WOTC Groups.” The information I reported was distributed by a particular kind of DOL ETA Advisory called a “Training and Employment Guidance Letter,” or TEGL. Specifically, see TEGL No. 3-09 Change 2. Go ahead and have a look at it!
