California Contractors LLC Business Licence Bond

SB 392 requires contractors organized as limited liability companies (LLCs) to post a $100,000 bond as a condition of an LLC business license. The bond is for the benefit of any employee damaged by his or her employer’s failure to pay wages, interest on wages or fringe benefits. Further, if the licensee is a party to a collective bargaining agreement, the bond must cover welfare fund contributions, pension fund contributions and apprentice program contributions. The new law exempts qualifying individuals from the contractor license bond requirements if the individual held a 10% membership interest in a limited liability partnership. Current law requires a surety bond in the amount of $12,500 for contractors.
