UPDATE: July 2, 2014. New Mexico has released the new Human Trafficking poster required for employers.
In an effort to combat human trafficking, forced labor, and sex slavery, the State of New Mexico will require all employers to display a Notice on Human Trafficking beginning July 1, 2014. The requirement comes from legislation (HB 181) that Governor Susana Martínez signed into law.
The New Mexico Workforce Solutions Department was directed to produce an 8.5”x11” sign that reads:
NOTICE ON HUMAN TRAFFICKING: OBTAINING FORCED LABOR OR SERVICES IS A CRIME UNDER NEW MEXICO AND FEDERAL LAW. IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS A VICTIM OF THIS CRIME, CONTACT THE FOLLOWING: IN NEW MEXICO, CALL OR TEXT 505-GET-FREE (505-438-3733); OR CALL THE NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING RESOURCE CENTER HOTLINE TOLL-FREE AT 1-888-373-7888 FOR HELP. YOU MAY ALSO SEND THE TEXT “HELP” OR “INFO” TO BEFREE (“233733”). YOU MAY REMAIN ANONYMOUS, AND YOUR CALL OR TEXT IS CONFIDENTIAL.
GovDocs continues to monitor the Department for the poster release.
