Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to control victims for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or labor services against his/her will.

The majority of states conduct inspections in the salons and schools and may observe behaviors that are questionable. States can learn to recognize the signs of human trafficking through the National Human Trafficking website and train inspectors on how to respond and/or report their observations.
