In Adia v. Grandeur Management and Raja Younas, the 2nd Court of Appeal stated that immigrants could bring a civil lawsuit against employers who violate the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). Forced labor under the TVPA can occur when a person knowingly obtains labor by abuse or threat, or by a pattern or scheme to cause belief that, if labor is not performed, there would be serious harm or physical threat.
