Legal Aspects of Human Trafficking for Health Providers
Title: Legal Aspects of Human Trafficking for Health Providers
Date Recorded: October 20, 2016
Description: This webinar will provide health care providers with insight into the legal remedies available to human trafficking victims. Each year, thousands of men, women, and children are held in forced labor, forced prostitution, and the commercial sexual exploitation of children. This webinar will explore the role health care providers can play in identifying trafficking victims, providing documentation, developing expert testimony, and providing affidavits for submission in legal cases. The program will cover both US citizen and foreign-born victims trafficked in the United States. Presenters will use case studies to discuss trafficking victims’ contact with the providers, including missed opportunities when victims might have been identified but were not. The speakers, both attorneys, have more than three decades of combined experience in the human trafficking field.
By the end of this webinar participants will be better able to:
- Identify legal remedies – immigration, civil, and criminal – available to trafficking victims in the United States.
- Define the critical role that healthcare providers can play in identifying victims, providing documentation, developing expert testimony, and providing affidavits for submission in legal cases.
- Identify human trafficking red flags through case examples of victims seeking medical care.
