The trafficking hotline must be posted in many Illinois businesses.  It is now required that they post the human trafficking hotline because of a new state law.  It is all an attempt to combat modern day slavery…

The state’s Department of Human Services is working with the state labor department as well as the attorney general’s office in order to raise awareness of the problem.  The law went into effect on January 1 and requires businesses such as bars and truck stops and recruitment centers to post the Human trafficking national hotline. Fines will be levied against business that don’t follow the directive.

James Dimas, is the Illinois Department of Human Services says human trafficking exploits people for forced labor or sex — or both. He says the law is aimed at helping victims get to safety.

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
