How does a California Garment Manufacturer Bond work?
A garment bond has three parties:
Principal – garment manufacturer
Obligee – State of California
Surety – the surety bond company or the surety bond provider
The principal is the party who will obtain the bond. The principal is also the party who’s required to perform all the conditions of the bond. The Obligee is the party who is requiring the bond and who will benefit from a bond claim. The role of the surety is to assure the obligee that the principal will be capable of fulfilling the obligations covered by the registration. The surety will also provide financial security by backing this bond in case the principal violates the obligations.
The surety is required to ensure that the obligee will be paid if the claim is valid. After the payment has been settled by the surety, the principal will be asked to reimburse the said payment.
