Are You Bondable?

If you have a good credit rating and no prior criminal activity then you are likely bondable.
Have you noticed that many postings or job applications ask are You Bondable? What does that really mean? Employee bonding is an insurance matter relating to the employer’s efforts to protect against theft or other wrongful acts by its employees. The insurance company requires information that helps them to determine if employees are likely to steal or damage property. The pre-employment screening process is used to weed out potential employees who have poor personal credit histories, or convictions for theft or fraud. These pre-employment inquires are now subject to increased scrutiny because of the existence of B.C.’s Personal Information Protection Act. If the employer cannot demonstrate a reasonable need for the background information then its request for that information would be unlawful. For an indepth view on bondabilty check out BCjobs.ca

    Hi Mike,
    Good question, our research indicates being bondable usually means you have no criminal record. However, to be certain you should check with the bonding company to see what they report. Perhaps check with the non-profit organization http://www.nomoredebts.org/ as well.

    I do have a promise to appear in court in December for a theft, but it does not show up on a criminal record check until I make that appearance. So is it ok for me to still say I’m bondable? I am pleading guilty and have learnt from this HUGE mistake.
