Human Trafficking Awareness for the Hospitality Industry


One.61 is certified by the State of Florida to instruct and in turn certify Hotel employees in Human Trafficking Awareness.

In 2019, the Florida Legislature passed and Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law new human trafficking legislation affecting lodging operators. Section 509.096, florida statutes, includes mandatory annual human trafficking awareness training for lodging employees who perform housekeeping duties or work at the front desk or reception areas.  Prudent lodging operators will also train their other guest interaction positions, including concierge, bell staff, valet, and others.

In addition to our comprehensive curriculum, it’s worth noting that our training is meticulously crafted to address the specific needs and challenges faced within the hospitality industry, particularly within hotels. Throughout the sessions, participants will engage with real-life case studies and scenarios drawn from hotel environments, providing practical insights and strategies for effective response.

Human Trafficking is a scourge.  The state of Florida in number 3 in the U.S. on the list of reported incidents, and hotels often figure in this sad statistic. Accordingly, we at One.61 believe strongly that in-person, classroom instruction from our experience cadre is the best way for hotels to be in compliance with the law, and, potentially, reduce liability.  We teach in English and Spanish.  Staff are presented with a certification diploma upon completion of our instruction.  Employees may come to our regularly scheduled classes in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami, or alternatively, One.61 can take our instruction of the road and use your hotel as classroom.  We can conduct several classes per day to accommodate hotel shift changes.

Human trafficking remains one of the most heinous and hidden crimes in our society, and the Sunshine State is not immune.  At One.61, we are committed to combating this global issue through our specialized Human Trafficking Awareness Training and Certification Services. This program is meticulously crafted to educate individuals in the hotel industry, and other corporate teams and community members as well, on the realities of human trafficking, its indicators, and effective response strategies. Our training is not just about awareness; it’s about empowering participants with the knowledge and tools to make a tangible difference in the fight against human trafficking.

Human Trafficking Awareness

Our Human Trafficking Awareness and Certification Service is designed to confront the complexities of human trafficking. The service is structured into several key components, each focusing on different aspects of human trafficking:

Understanding the Scope of Human Trafficking: We begin by noting the global and local dimensions of human trafficking. This includes statistics, trends, and the various forms it takes, such as labor trafficking, sex trafficking, and child trafficking. This foundational knowledge is crucial for recognizing the widespread impact of this issue.

Identification and Indicators: One of the primary focuses of our training is teaching participants how to identify potential signs of human trafficking in and around your hotel or business. This includes understanding the behavioral and physical indicators in victims, recognizing high-risk situations, and discerning the tactics used by traffickers.

Legal Framework and Policies: We provide an overview of the legal framework surrounding human trafficking, including local, national, and international laws and policies. This knowledge is essential for understanding the legal context and the rights of victims.

Response and Intervention Strategies: Participants will learn safe and effective methods of intervention and response. This includes how to report suspected trafficking and collaboration with law enforcement.
