This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Keeping a record of orders received from prospective employers

  • That an applicant for employment will only be sent if there is a legitimate job order
  • That the private employment agency will return 25% of the total salary paid to the employer if the employee fails to remain in employment for 30 days

If the licensee defaults on its obligation, the Obligee will have the right to recover a suitable compensation for the designated beneficiary via a bond claim.
