Employment Based U-Visa Criminal Activities -State Charts

These comprehensive charts are the product of a series of meetings and discussions with Department of Labor (DOL) officials on their U visa certification policy and practices. They track state laws on forced labor, involuntary servitude, slavery, slave trade, and peonage, which are not expressly included on the U visa criminal activity list, and identify the qualifying criminal activities on the U visa list that are contained within these state statutes. The goal of these charts is to provide a tool that will assist in adjudicating U visa cases involving U visa criminal activity and similar activities occurring in the workplace.
