New Florida Anti-Human Trafficking Compliance Requirements!

While massage establishments were a primary focus of Florida’s Anti-Human Trafficking Bill 2019-152, this is not the only industry facing new licensing requirements, which are designed to help expose, prevent and reduce human trafficking suffering and victimization.

First, if your business operates under licensing from the Florida Board of Massage Therapy, you are undoubtedly aware of the changes that have been underway.  You must:

  • Have registered a qualified Designated Establishment Manager by Jan 1, 2020*
  • Implement a reporting procedure for suspected human trafficking per Board guidelines (as yet under development)
  • All licensed providers must complete an approved 1 hour course on Human Trafficking by January 1, 2021
  • Display Human Trafficking workplace posters by January 1, 2021

If you are NOT operating a massage establishment, but you ARE a healthcare provider licensed by any of these other Florida professional Boards:

  • Acupuncture, Medicine
  • Osteopathic Medicine
  • Chiropractic Medicine
  • Podiatric Medicine
  • Optometry
  • Pharmacy
  • Dentistry
  • Nursing Home Administration
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Dietetics and Nutrition
  • Respiratory Care
  • Physical Therapy

Here are the parts of the new regulations with which you must comply:

  1. Display the Anti-Human Trafficking workplace poster in your workplace no later than January 1, 2021.  The standard poster includes English and Spanish, but versions are available that include content in Mandarin and Creole if these languages are spoken by employees.
  2. By January 1, 2021, all healthcare providers licensed by the above-listed Boards must complete a board-approved 1-hour training course on Human Trafficking.   Click here for a list of approved courses.
