What does the bond cover?

Your Farm Labor Contractor Bond is a guarantee that you understand and agree to comply with all laws and regulations governing your business through the California Labor Code. In the event that you do not adequately comply with these regulations, your clients (often migratory workers who you act as a contracting intermediary for) will be compensated by your surety company. In this event, you will be required to repay your surety in full, including any fees, and may lose your Farm Labor Contractor Bond. In the event that you lose your bond, your license will be invalid and you may not continue to operate as a labor contractor until you are able to obtain a new bond.

Who needs this bond?

Any individual or company operating as an intermediary between farms and contract workers in California are required to hold a Farm Labor Contractor Bond for the duration of their licensed business operations.

If you are applying for, or renewing, a license to operate as a Farm Labor Contractor, you are required to hold this bond the entire time your license is active.

How much does this bond cost?

This bond is also known as a Farm Contractor, Farm Labor, or Migrant Worker Surety Bond.

In many states, including California, you are legally required to carry a Farm Labor Contractor Bond if you run a farm labor contracting company. This bond is a guarantee that you will abide by the laws and regulations in place regarding the handling of contract and/or migratory workers and their services.

South Coast Surety works with a variety of credit scores. Our agents will work with you to find a competitive price for your California Farm Labor Contractor Surety Bond, and are available now to begin your bonding process.

This bond is NOT a form of insurance for you, the bondholder - it is a protective measure for your clients (contract workers) in the event that you violate laws pertaining to their payment or labor rights.

In the event that there is a claim filed against your bond, you will be required to submit all relevant documentation to your surety company, and if you are found to have violated the terms of your bond, your surety bond will repay the damaged parties. If your surety makes any payments to damaged parties, you will then be obligated to repay the full amount to your surety company, in addition to any fees.

Your surety company may revoke your surety bond, which will effect your ability to continue operating with your license. It is extremely important that you understand all laws and regulations regarding labor contracting in California, and comply with them in full.

I was shopping for a surety bond for the first time and having trouble communicating with several different companies. When I contacted South Coast Surety they responded quickly and performed the transaction quick and easy. I might have been able to find a lower price, but their professionalism was worth a couple extra dollars.

We are opening up a Mental Health Residential Treatment Center and needed a Surety bond since we will be handling some clients cash resources. I reached out to South Coast Surety, they sent me an application, paid our premium and had our bond sent to us immediately. Everyone I spoke to and emailed was courteous, attentive and responded very quickly. We will most definitely continue to get all of our bond services from South Coast.
