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. Experts on trafficking will cover emerging issues including:

  • Prosecutions brought by the federal government in labor trafficking schemes
  • 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

Join speakers E. Christopher Johnson Jr., retired GM North America Vice President and General Counsel; Martina Vandenberg from The Human Trafficking Pro Bono Legal Center; Mia Winkley, from the FBI; and, Kelly (Hyland) Heinrich from the Global Freedom Center who will provide background and guidance around the topic of forced labor and federal enforcement.
