California Laws Amend Human Trafficking Posting Requirement

Posting Mandatory for Certain Businesses and Establishments

New California laws amend the human trafficking posting requirement that is mandatory for certain businesses and establishments. Highlights of the legislation are presented below.

New Legislation
The new legislation adds hotels, motels, and bed and breakfast inns (not including personal residences) to the list of establishments required to post the human trafficking notice discussed in the "Background" section below.

Additionally, the new legislation updates the model human trafficking notice to include a number that individuals may text. On or before January 1, 2019, the state Department of Justice is expected to revise and update the model notice to comply with the requirements of the law and make the updated model notice available for download on the Department's website. A business or establishment required to post the model notice is not required to post the updated model notice until on and after January 1, 2019.

Employers may review the new California laws (SB-225 and AB-260) for additional details. The laws are effective January 1, 2018.

Background
Under current state law, specified businesses and establishments--including (among other things) certain on-sale general public premises licensees, adult or sexually oriented businesses, and primary airports--must post a human trafficking notice.
