My name is Bond. Fidelity Bond (webinar)

What is a Fidelity Bond? Who is eligible? Who do they help?

The Fidelity Bonding Program serves as an incentive, encouraging employers to hire job seekers who might otherwise be denied employment. Employers can tap into another pool of the qualified talent with the skills they seek while minimizing potential risk through bonds of up to $25,000. Job seekers with “high-risk” backgrounds can find gainful employment.

Find out how to tap this resource, help its target talent pool obtain and retain employment and make employers happy.

This training will cover the features of the Fidelity Bonding Program, the bonding process, individuals and situations that are not covered by the FBP, the recent state policy issuance, i.e., Policy Issuance (PI): 19-22, and the Fidelity Bonding Demonstration Grants (FBDG).

Michael Prus, State Fidelity Bonding Coordinator, Workforce Development, State of Michigan

Michael has been employed with the State of Michigan for 20+ years, starting his career as a State Employment Counselor and presently working as a State Fidelity Bonding Coordinator. His function is critical in Workforce Development because he services high-risk job seekers to become employable and provides employers with qualified workers through the Fidelity Bonding Program (FBP) of Michigan.

Under his direction as the State Fidelity Bonding Coordinator, Michigan was nationally recognized as one of the eight states in the United States for its “Best Practices” of the Fidelity Bonding Program. A proclamation by the former Honorable Governor Jennifer Granholm recognized the program statewide in March 2009 as “Fidelity Bonding Program of Michigan Month.”  The State of Michigan was awarded a $100,000 grant on June 18, 2019 from the Fidelity Bonding Demonstration Grants (FBDG) by the USDOL-ETA.
