Anti-Human Trafficking

As a recipient of federal grants and contracts, Emory must comply with federal requirements related to combatting human trafficking. Principal investigators seeking federal contracts or grants must familiarize themselves with these requirements.

Human trafficking involves the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery; or sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not yet attained 18 years of age.

Human Trafficking is also prohibited by state law and Emory policy (see also Emory policy 7.16 prohibiting prostitution and sex trafficking).

The following pages highlight information related to combatting human trafficking as it relates to federal contracts and grants.
