Human trafficking is an international scourge. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates that 20.9 million people are trapped in forced labor or servitude around the globe. In the United States, the federal government has launched a multi-pronged effort to combat trafficking. Federal prosecutions, enhanced regulations to prevent forced labor in government contracting, and increased enforcement activity characterize this initiative. Four experts on trafficking will cover emerging issues in the field, including:

  • Recent prosecutions brought by the federal government in labor trafficking schemes
  • Enforcement of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (and subsequent reauthorizations)
  • Civil litigation against human traffickers in U.S. federal courts
  • The role of corrupt labor brokers who use force, fraud or coercion to trick potential employees, who are then held in forced labor
  • Intersections between human trafficking and the FCPA
  • Model Business and Supplier Principles on Labor Trafficking and Child Labor created by the ABA Business Law Section
  • Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 22.17 and the Obama Administration’s Executive Order on trafficking and federal government contracting
  • Pro Bono work on behalf of trafficking victims in U.S. federal courts
