How Does an Alabama Employer Avoid Iron Worker Wage and Welfare Bond Claims?

Per the Union Board, the Structural Iron Workers Local Union No. 92 Wage and Welfare Bond is required to ensure that employers of their union members abide by all contractual agreements and properly compensate iron worker employees for their services. Meaning, all earned salaries, wages, and/or fringe benefits must be properly and promptly paid to the union member and, if applicable, pay dues directly to the union. If such compensation is not received, the iron worker may file a claim on the employer’s bond. The surety bond will cover what is owed to the employee for the work they performed. To avoid claims on your bond, simply honor your employee agreements and pay what is due to your employees.

If an official claim is filed on your bond, immediately contact Jet will all available claim documentation and information. The Jet team will begin a review and investigation of the bond claim. However, if the claim is found to be valid, Jet is legally obligated per the Structural Iron Workers Local Union No. 92 Wage and Welfare Bond form to make payment up to the bond limit. 

As the claim was filed due to your failure to compensate your employees, you are ultimately responsible for reimbursing Jet for the paid out claim. An omission to do so will lead to future difficulties in obtaining Wage and Welfare Bonds in Alabama.
