IFWJD - Workplace Justice - A Message from your DA

Human trafficking is the world’s fastest-growing criminal enterprise and is an estimated $150 billion-a-year global industry. It is a form of modern-day slavery that profits from the exploitation of our most vulnerable populations. California has made significant strides in fighting human trafficking based in sexual exploitation, but there are many challenges that remain in properly addressing the plague of labor trafficking.

As the San Diego County District Attorney, I am committed to supporting victims of labor trafficking abuse. Citizenship is not a requirement to report fraudulent activity in the State of California. It is your right to be paid your legally or contractually promised wages. In California, all workers are protected by labor laws. We work in conjunction with the California Labor Commissioner’s Office to make sure your rights are protected. Our office is committed to making sure all employees are paid fairly and that all employers can compete on an even playing field.
