Employment agencies in Washington D.C. are licensed and regulated by the District’s DCRA, Department of Consumer and Regulatory affairs.
Employment agencies must furnish one of two surety bond amounts, $50,000 or $100,000. The bond must be issued for 2 years, as is your employment agency license.
The way to determine the amount required is as follows:
If you are still unsure as to the bond amount you require, you’ll want to contact the DCRA at 202-442-4400 before calling our agency.
Applicants for the $50,000 Washington D.C. employment agency bond are automatically approved without a credit check. The premium is $900 for your 2 year bond, $450 for each year. The $900 premium is paid at once.
When you call us, we’ll take the application from you over the phone. This really just consists of providing us with your name and address, as they should appear on your bond. We’ll also request your name as Principal.
After payment of the premium, the bond is issued to you immediately.
Applicants for $100,000 employment agency bond will need to provide us with a signed application and undergo review by our underwriters which includes a credit inquiry.
Approval for the $100,000 surety bond amount is based on good credit. The premium upon approval is $1800 for the two year period.
For both surety bond amounts, once your bond and Power of Attorney are received in the mail, you’ll sign your bond as Principal, have it signed by two witnesses, and file the received documents to:
District of Columbia Dept. of Consumer Regulatory Affairs
