Human trafficking and child labor have become widespread in the media over the past six months.

With legal action taken against companies like Nestle and Costco, and the recent Amnesty International report putting the spotlight on tech giants like Apple, it is more important than ever to understand human trafficking legislation and how to mitigate risk.

On February 2nd, Michael Littenberg of Ropes & Gray LLP and Assent Compliance’s Human Trafficking Subject Matter Expert, Kate Dunbar, hosted a webinar discussing these highly relevant topics.
