Altogether 7 lawyers and employees of HRL attended the training. IOM lecturers conducted the training in a very practical way that would be beneficial for participants when providing legal counselling to refugees about safe employment in Slovakia.
Participants received information on the mechanism of human trafficking, how to identify the “red flags” that could indicate potential victims of trafficking, how to safely refer a suspicion of victims of trafficking and other practical information on safe employment and tips on safe travel.
