How Do PEO Surety Bonds Work?

Outsourcing HR and payroll functions creates significant financial risk for companies. Surety bonds provide financial security and reinforce operational certainty for clients of PEOs. The legal language found on PEO bond forms typically requires companies to do the following:

  • Meet state registration and licensing requirements
  • Provide workers’ compensation policy collateral
  • Guarantee PEO performance of employer responsibilities
  • Guarantee payment of clients’ service fees

If a professional employment organization breaks the bond terms, clients can file a claim. The surety provider will then reimburse the harmed party for damages up to the full bond value. Then, the PEO must reimburse the surety in full.
