The US Dept. of Homeland Security is committed to enforcing anti-human trafficking and forced labor laws. What does their new ‘Strategy’ document mean for companies?
On 15 January 2020, the US Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) published the “Strategy to Combat Trafficking in Persons, the Importation of Goods Produced with Forced Labour and the Sexual Exploitation of Children”, a new document outlining its commitment and strategy to enforce laws against trafficking and forced labor.
Anti-trafficking and forced labor laws have been in place for many years, but DHS’s new strategy means that companies operating in the US market must take them seriously. Non-compliance with the law has very real consequences – and it’s not just a fine.
The law will be enforced, and this can play an important role in your ability to meet market demand, whether it is for criminal investigation, PR, goods held at the border, etc.
During the webinar we discusses with DHS/ICE the implications of law enforcement’s commitment to this initiative and strategies that you and your business can benefit from.
