Three-Part Test to Identify Human Trafficking Victims

The fight against human trafficking is a difficult one, primarily because of how hard it can be to identify trafficking victims. In many cases trafficked persons are lumped together with undocumented workers. In order to better serve victims of trafficking a three-part test has been created:

1. Has there been transport, shelter, harboring, and/or exchange of services that in some way has affected the person?

2. Has the person lived in conditions of forced prostitution, labor slavery, or conditions similar to slavery?

3. Was there coercion, violence or threats that compelled the person to stay?
