Fidelity bonds can help shield your business from employee fraud. They’re usually used to insure a business for losses caused by the dishonest acts of its employee, partners or officers. These bonds protect employers or third parties from losses of company monies, securities, and other property from employees who intend to harm the company.

ERISA bonds shield retirement plans from fraud or dishonesty. ERISA, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, requires that every person who manages or handles employee benefit plans be covered by a fidelity bond.

Contract surety bonds are critical to the smooth operation of your business. They offer financial security and construction guarantee on building and construction projects. They do that by assuring the project owner that the contractor will carry out the work and pay certain subcontractors, laborers, and material suppliers.
