The Federal Bonding Program

What is it?

The U.S. Department of Labor established The Federal Bonding Program in 1966 to provide Fidelity Bonds that guarantee honesty for “at-risk,” hard-to-place job seekers. The bonds cover the first six months of employment. There is no cost to the job applicant or the employer.
