The California Contractor LLC Employee Bond is required by the California Contractors State License Board.
All contractors in California must be licensed by the California Contractors License Board. Up until 2011, a Limited Liability Company (LLC) could not obtain a contractors license in California. With the passage of Senate Bill 392, an LLC can now be a licensed contractor in the State if it meets certain additional requirements. One of these requirements is a $100,000 California Contractor LLC Employee Surety Bond. This bond in addition to the $15,000 contractor’s license bond required of all contractors in the state.
What does the Contractor LLC Employee Surety Bond cover?
The Contractor LLC Employee Surety Bond is, for all intents and purposes, a wage and welfare bond. The bond is “for the benefit of any employee or worker damaged by the LLC’s failure to pay wages, interest on wages, or fringe benefits, as well as other contributions”. The contractor is responsible for making these payments. The bond does not insure the contractor against missing payments or offer protection to the contractor for hours claimed. If the surety pays a claim, it will seek reimbursement from the principal (contractor).
