Federal Bonding

Federal Bonding:  A FREE job incentive!

Uncertain about hiring a worker?  Federal Bonding is a FREE job incentive for employers to hire job seekers and retain at-risk employees. This program can be used to overcome the negative issues that an at-risk job seeker might have.

At-risk job seekers and employees include those who:

  • Have little or no work history
  • Receive public assistance
  • Have bad credit
  • Have declared bankruptcy
  • Cannot secure employment without having insurance coverage
  • Are ex-offenders

Federal Bonding highlights:

  • Fidelity insurance provides for an employer to recoup losses incurred due to illegal acts of fraud, embezzlement, larceny and theft committed against the employer by a bonded at-risk employee. This no-deductible insurance coverage begins the day the bonded employee starts work and ends after six months of employment.
  • Insurance coverage can be for full- or part-time employment. Fidelity Bonds are not for entrepreneurial, court, professional or bail purposes. The sole purpose of these bonds is to guarantee personal integrity in the workplace.
