Human Trafficking CE Requirement
2019 Legislative Session: HB 851

HB 851 created section 456.0341, F.S., which requires licensees in the professions of
physical therapy, respiratory therapy, occupational therapy and dietetics, among others
to complete a one-hour continuing education course on human trafficking by January 1,
2021. The legislation also requires these licensees to post a sign, meeting specific
requirements and accessible to employees, with information about human trafficking.
The Department has and continues to communicate with licensees to ensure that they
are aware of and complete the needed continuing education prior to the deadline. A
sample communication is provided.

456.0341 Requirements for instruction on human trafficking. The requirements of
this section apply to each person licensed or certified under chapter 457; chapter 458;
chapter 459; chapter 460; chapter 461; chapter 463; chapter 465; chapter 466; part II,
part III, part V, or part X of chapter 468; chapter 480; or chapter 486.

(1) By January 1, 2021, each licensee or certificate holder shall complete a board-
approved, or department-approved if there is no board, 1-hour continuing education
course on human trafficking. The course must address both sex trafficking and labor
trafficking, how to identify individuals who may be victims of human trafficking, how to
report cases of human trafficking, and resources available to victims.

(2) Each licensing board that requires a licensee or certificate holder to complete a
course pursuant to this section must include the hour required for completion in the total
hours of continuing education required by law for such profession.
(3) By January 1, 2021, the licensees or certificate holders shall post in their place of
work in a conspicuous place accessible to employees a sign at least 11 inches by 15
inches in size, printed in a clearly legible font and in at least a 32-point type, which
substantially states in English and Spanish:

“If you or someone you know is being forced to engage in an activity and cannot leave,
whether it is prostitution, housework, farm work, factory work, retail work, restaurant
work, or any other activity, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 888-
373-7888 or text INFO or HELP to 233-733 to access help and services. Victims of
slavery and human trafficking are protected under United States and Florida law.”
