Why do I need an employment agency bond?
Employment agency bonds are required by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development in the amount of $3,000.
By posting a Massachusetts employment agency bond, agencies guarantee their compliance with the rules, laws, and regulations stated in the Massachusetts General Laws.
If an employment agency fails to comply with these terms, the surety will pay harmed parties for damages and losses up to the penal sum of the bond. The agency, in turn, must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
To determine whether your agency is considered an employment agency in Massachusetts, please review the definitions the state has laid forth.
Considerations for Massachusetts employment agency bonds
Massachusetts employment agency bonds expire at the same time the agency’s license is surrendered, terminated through non-renewal, or revoked by the Department of Labor Standards. If the surety chooses to cancel this bond prior to expiration, written notice must be given to the agency and the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards via registered mail 60 days prior to the proposed expiration date.
