Licensee Requirements to Promote Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline 


The National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline Notification Act of 2012 requires certain types of businesses and establishments in Pennsylvania to post signage promoting the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline.


The following types of businesses and establishments must post at least one sign that contains information regarding the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline in a conspicuous manner clearly visible to the public and employees:

  • The holder of an Restaurant Liquor (R) or Eating Place Malt Beverage (E) license that has been found to be a drug or public nuisance
  • A hotel or motel that has been found to be a drug or public nuisance
  • An adult entertainment enterprise featuring nude or partially nude dancing or providing live adult entertainment
  • An airport, train station or bus station
  • A welcome center or rest area operated by the Department of Transportation or the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission
  • A full-service truck stop (as defined in the Clean Indoor Air Act)
  • A personal service establishment, under certain circumstances

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry has developed posters in English and Spanish that meet the Act’s notification requirements. The posters should be printed no smaller than 8 ½ by 11 inches and are welcome to be used by any business, not just those required to post the information.
Penalties, including fines up to $500, are established by the Act for not posting the information as required.
