The Federal Bonding Program (FBP)  

The CT Department of Labor (CTDOL) is committed to helping those involved in the criminal justice system, including ex-offenders recovering from opioid and other drug addictions, obtain employment in family-sustaining jobs and address their barriers to reemployment.

Through the Federal Bonding Program (FBP), employers can apply for cost free bonding assistance to help reduce the risks of hiring individuals whose criminal backgrounds pose barriers to securing employment. These bonds protect employers against losses caused by the fraudulent or dishonest acts of the bonded employee. Examples: theft, forgery, larceny, and embezzlement. An individual can be bonded up to $25,000 with $0 deductible and covers the first six months of a selected individualís employment.

The total cost of the Fidelity Bonding Program is $100,000, which is 100% funded through a U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training grant.

Eligible Participants: Only individuals with criminal records, including those involved with the criminal justice system by virtue of their history of opioid or other drug addictions, are eligible for coverage under the Fidelity Bonding Program. Only full-time or part-time W-2 employees are eligible for this program. Self-employed individuals are not eligible. Individuals must have a job offer to pursue bonding.
