Lodging employees must undergo human trafficking awareness training by January 1, 2020.
Senate Bill 970 requires lodging employees to undergo 20 minutes of human trafficking awareness training by January 1, 2020. CHLA members have access to free human trafficking training through CHLA’s partnership with Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking (BEST). Properties with fewer than 20 rooms are exempt from this requirement, but we still encourage you to explore the free online training and resources.
