Employee Theft Can Put You Out of Business

Do you trust your employees? Sure, you’d like to trust them 100%. But are you willing to put your business on the line with that trust?

Every year in the US, businesses lose around $60 billion due to dishonest employees. Employee theft can be one of the most damaging causes of business failure, with around 30% of businesses closing as a result.

No matter how much you trust your employees, it’s a good idea to protect yourself from possible harm they could cause. You need a Dishonesty Bond and/or a Business Services Bond.

Dishonesty Bonds

If your employees are handling money or doing bookkeeping, then a Dishonesty Bond can protect you from theft, embezzlement and forgery. This is also known as a Fidelity Bond.

Business Services Bonds

If your company deals with services such as appliance repair, housekeeping, lawn maintenance or other trades that involves going to a client’s home or business, you may want to consider obtaining a Business Services Bond. This protects you from liability due to dishonest acts of your employees while on location.

In the event a customer loses money or personal property due to an employee’s actions, your business would be protected from liability. Examples of businesses that could benefit from having this bond include:
