Tag: Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking is a form of slavery that involves the illegal smuggling and trading of people for forced labor or sexual exploitation.

Trafficking is defined as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons using coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, or abuse of power from a position of vulnerability for exploitation.  It is estimated that with 27.6M victims worldwide at any given time, traffickers prey on people of all ages, backgrounds, and nationalities, exploiting them for their profit.

This is a highly complex topic.  We encourage employers of all sizes to understand the definition and the penalties for violating these rules.  Human trafficking is a crime with severe consequences.  This publication will expand its coverage of Human Trafficking to help people understand the signs.  It happens around us a lot, and we don’t know what is going on the circumstances, or the penalties involved.
