Fidelity bonding is sponsored by the Michigan Workforce Development Agency. The fidelity bonding program was created to assist high-risk, qualified job seekers who have bona fide offers of employment.
A fidelity bond is a business insurance policy for employers who hire and employ at-risk job seekers. It is usually purchased to protect employers from loss of money or property incurred as a result of hiring high-risk job seekers. Fidelity bond insurance is free for employers. Bond insurance carries no deductible amounts, and it becomes effective on the employee’s first day of employment. The fidelity bond is mailed directly to an employer.

Eligibility includes those job seekers who have a job offer and fall into the following categories: Ex-offenders, former substance abusers, and other individuals who have a questionable background as high-risk job seekers who might be untrustworthy workers.
