Sex trafficking has been called "the slavery of our times." As the problem grows, sexual exploitation increasingly involves the American workplace. Research shows that buyers of sex are often employees themselves and are routinely using work time and employer resources to purchase and make arrangements for illicit sex.

In response, labor and employment attorneys, law enforcement professionals and other advocates are finding new ways to join forces and collaborate to fight sex trafficking through education and advocacy. The Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General, along with its partners, has recently launched a statewide initiative, Employers Against Sex Trafficking (EAST), to combat and reduce demand for the purchase of illicit sex.

In this program, our distinguished panel will discuss sex trafficking and measures advocates can take to protect against it, both inside and outside of the workplace. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Sex trafficking: When? Where? How?
  • Enforcement efforts by the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office, including the Employers Against Sex Trafficking initiative
  • Implications for employers, including potential liability and risk-management
