Indicators of Human Trafficking
Things to remember
The defining feature of human trafficking is the exploitation, or the intended exploitation, of a person. Anyone can be trafficked: people from other countries; people from your own community; women, men, children, youth, and transgendered people.
Every case is different and there is no single checklist of indicators that prove a person has been trafficked. However, the presence of these indicators means it may be a trafficking situation.
The indicators, or “Red Flags” that follow are available at the end of this module for you to print out and keep handy at your workplace.
