WHAT ARE Janitorial Services Bonds?
For Businesses that provide janitorial services to other business? You know how vulnerable their employees are to employee dishonesty. After all, their employees have access to customers’ assets, equipment, supplies and personal belongings.
These employees are easy targets for blame. Any customer who finds something missing is likely to suspect those who do the cleaning. The fact is dishonest employees can significantly damage their employer’s business.
This bond is specifically designed to provide protection for your client’s customers. They may have good luck and never have problems with a dishonest employee; but they will rest easier knowing they are covered.
WHAT INFORMATION IS NEEDED TO UNDERWRITE A DISHONESTY / FIDELITY BOND?
Underwriting is limited to five basic questions:
1. Name and address of the applicant . – This is self-explanatory.
2. Penalty amount . – We offer limits up to $100,000 for Form A and B Dishonesty Bonds and Janitorial Services Bonds.
3. Description of the business. – The description will determine whether Form A or Form B is used. Final discretion in classification is reserved by the underwriter.
4. Total number of employees .- Keep in mind That all employees, and owners / officers if they are to be included in coverage, are included in this count. A person does not have to work a full 40-hour work week to be considered an employee. Be particularly careful when a large organization (i.e. department store or construction company ) lists only a small number of employees. Since these are blanket bonds, they cover all employees.
5. Information regarding prior losses – When the business has suffered a previous dishonesty loss, it is important to obtain a detailed explanation of how the loss occurred and what steps were taken to prevent the loss from occurring again. It is also important to know whether the defaulting employee was terminated. A prior loss does not mean the bond cannot be issued, but more underwriting is needed.
