ABSTRACT
The article examines corporate liability for human trafficking. The author is primarily concerned with the ways in which this form of forced labor can be undermined through a combination of corporate and individual liability. She examines how international human rights standards can inform corporate liability. Also addressed are the ways in which corporations involved in trafficking can be held accountable under the U.S. Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA). An economic analysis of corporate liability is provided, with the author explaining the reduced costs experienced by corporations who hire employees through independent contractors.
