Minnesota Contractor License Bonds

In Minnesota, the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) and certain municipalities have requirements for contractors to be licensed and bonded to conduct business. Contractor License Surety Bonds in Minnesota protect the obligee and the general public from any damage caused by the principal’s (contractor) failure to comply with the rules and regulations of the city/state. A claim can be filed if the principal causes harm to either the obligee or the public and, if the claim is valid, the surety may pay out up to the penal sum of the bond. Any monies paid by the surety must be reimbursed by the principal.
