The State of Virginia requires certain businesses to post a Human Tracking Hotline Poster. Sections 40.1-11.3 of the Code of Virginia requires specific business operations to display the notice informing employees of the human trafficking hotline number to seek help or report unlawful activity. Failure to display the notice can result in penalties ranging from $100-$500, depending on the business operation. The notice must be displayed in the same location as other employee postings required by state and federal labor laws.
Civil Code 40.1-11.3 Mandates the Following Businesses Display the Poster:
A. Any employer who operates a business that provides entertainment commonly called stripteasing or topless entertaining or entertainment that has employees who are not clad above or below the waist. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to businesses described in this subsection providing entertainment in theaters, concert halls, art centers, museums, or similar establishments that are devoted primarily to the arts or theatrical performances, when the performances that are presented are expressing matters of serious literary, artistic, scientific, or political value.
B. Any employer who operates a truck stop. "Truck stop" means a facility that is capable of fueling a qualified highway vehicle that bears an IFTA identification marker as those terms are defined in § 58.1-2700.
The 8.5" x 11" Virginia Human Trafficking Poster fulfills this requirement.
