Issue: there appear to be no civil penalties for failure to release slaves on the sabbath year. However, this law clearly moderates a civil transaction, as it involves an exchange of goods/services.
Proposed solution: Consider treating a slave's time as the property of the slave, which is subject to a business deal wherein the slave gives that time to the master. Under these terms, failure to release a slave in the sabbath year or year of jubilee (or when the slave's term is otherwise complete) would be equivalent to theft of that slave's time, and so it would invoke the civil penalty for theft at whatever rate was agreed upon for that enslavement, times the modifier for theft (7 times, right? Is it always 7 times, or only in certain circumstances? Is 7 fold the same as 7 times? Gotta look all that up.)
