A Wisconsin employment agency bond is required by state statute from ONE of two classes of agency license.  Wisconsin §105.01 defines “employment agent” as any person who furnishes to others seeking employment, information enabling or tending to enable such persons to secure the same, or who furnishes employers seeking laborers or other help of any kind, information enabling or tending to enable such employers to secure such help, or who keeps a record of persons seeking employment.  The Wisconsin employment agent bond is not required from employment agencies that charge fees to BUSINESSES seeking workers.  Only registration with the Division of Labor Standards and payment of a small fee is necessary.  If however the employment agency charges fees to the APPLICANTS seeking work, then licensing is required, inspection of the agency’s premises, an investigation of the character and fitness of the licensed principal, and the posting of a Wisconsin employment agency bond.  The surety bond must be written in the amount of $5,000 and issued by a surety company licensed to do business in Wisconsin.  The Division must review and approve the instrument.  The obligation guarantees that the agent will conform to and not violate any of the duties, terms, conditions or requirements of Section 105.01 to 105.16 inclusive of the Wisconsin Statutes, and  any rules issued by the Division.  The Wisconsin employment agents bond is cancelable by surety upon sixty days written notice.  There is no indication that the obligation or the underlying statute creates cumulative liability, mandatory forfeiture or any other onerous condition. National surety leaderSurety One, Inc., is the ‘No. 1′ writer of surety bonds for the financial services sector.  We offer private employment agency bonds to ALL applicants in every where they are required.
