No. We currently do not offer a vouching process, but we are working on putting the service in place. However, The Department of Labor offers a bonding program.
The bonds issued by the FBP guarantee the job honesty of job seekers to employers who want to hire them. Employers receive the bonds – starting at $5000.00 value – free-of-charge as an incentive to hire these applicants; coverage is for the first six months of a selected individual’s term of employment. The FBP bond insurance was designed to reimburse the employer for any loss due to employee theft of money or property
Some employers who normally wouldn’t hire you because of the “risk” involved in hiring someone with “diminished moral character” will consider you if you are bonded. The process does not cost you anything and is good to put on your resume when you receive the bond.
