Human Trafficking: What Hospitality Staff Need To Know


Since May 2017, VCCAHT Members have provided human trafficking awareness training to staff in hotels and motels around the county.

With the signing of Senate Bill 970 on September 27, 2018, hotel and motel employers are now required by January 1, 2020, to provide training and education regarding human trafficking awareness to each employee who is likely to interact or come into contact with victims of human trafficking.

Our training educates staff on the definition, as well as the difference between sex trafficking and labor trafficking, gives guidance on how to recognize warning signs within a hotel setting, and helps staff know how to respond should they suspect human trafficking taking place in their hotel.

If you are interested in having us come out to train your staff, contact us at vccaht@gmail.com. We would be happy to come.
