ABSTRACT
A new concern is beginning to gain notoriety in society, and, thus, emerging as an issue about which businesses should be concerned. The issue is human trafficking, also referred to as slavery. There are almost 30 million slaves around the world today. The fact that human trafficking is a 32 billion dollar business indicates either indifference for human rights, or an ignorance of the injustice occurring. Companies exercise social responsibility by not tolerating human trafficking within their business operations and business relationships. The purpose of this paper is to examine the extent to which companies are involved in combating human trafficking. Data for the study were collected from all the Fortune 500 companies. Findings indicate that companies can do more, as only 31 percent of companies are addressing the problem of human trafficking.
