On January 1st, Florida's new Human Trafficking law took effect. The law requires that a sign be posted at every rest area, turnpike service plaza, weigh station, primary airport, passenger rail station, and welcome center in the state which is open to the public. General acute care hospitals must display this notice in their emergency rooms. Also, employers are required to display the sign in a conspicuous location that is clearly visible to the public and employees of strip clubs and other adult entertainment establishments or a business that offers massage or bodywork services for compensation that is not owned by a health care profession regulated pursuant to chapter 456 and defined in s.456.001. The notice must be posted in English and Spanish. This is a substantive change and a new Florida Human Trafficking poster is required.
