FEDERAL PROGRAM TO HELP EMPLOYERS HIRE EX-OFFENDERS
Federal Bonding Program
1725 De Sales St., NW, Suite 900
Washington, DC 20036
The Federal Bonding Program provides insurance (coverage that protects the employer from employee theft or destruction up to $10,000) for people that the employer's bonding company will not insure. The government provides bonding coverage at no cost to the employer or the applicant. The only standards for qualification are that the applicant be qualified for the job position, not be commercially bondable, and have a firm offer for full time work.
Application is made through any one of the 1,700 local offices of the state employment service offices (or Job Service). All ex-offenders are automatically eligible.
Between 1966 and October 1990 more than 25,000 persons who otherwise would not have received bonding were qualified; during this period there was a default rate of only 1.57%. Research shows that those who received bonding assistance could not have obtained the job without this coverage.
