Principal – farm labor contractor

Obligee – State of California

Surety – surety bond provider

Under the terms of this bond, the Principal must comply with the relevant laws of the State as well as the conditions of the license. The Surety will assure the Obligee (beneficiary of the bond) that the Principal will fulfill all the obligations.

If not, the Obligee can file a claim against the bond. The Surety will first investigate the validity of the claim. Once the Surety has paid the Obligee, the Principal must reimburse the Surety of the full amount.
