Human Trafficking Awareness Training for Hotels
Human trafficking is a multibillion dollar criminal industry that affects millions of men, women and children around the world. The illegal exploitation of individuals takes many different forms and occurs in many different places, including hotels and motels. Traffickers often take advantage of the privacy and anonymity of the hospitality industry, underscoring the need to train staff on how to recognize and report signs of sex trafficking, forced labor and domestic servitude.
Combating human trafficking is a priority for the hotel industry, with active support from companies, organizations and some lawmakers. California recently enacted a law requiring hotels and motels to train all employees on human trafficking awareness by January 1, 2020, and then every two years. The law applies to employees hired as of July 1, 2019, who are likely to interact or encounter victims of human trafficking. New employees must be trained within six months of hire.
As local, national and global efforts gain momentum, implementing a regular awareness training is one of many positive steps hotels can take to ensure all employees know their role in combating human trafficking, whether they work front desk and security, food and beverage, housekeeping and maintenance or other areas.
