The Commission may require an employer to deposit a bond if the employer is convicted of two violations of the act or if a final order of the Commission remains unpaid after the 10th day after the order has become final and no appeal is pending. The bond must be in an amount set by the Commission; it must guarantee the payment of any sum recovered against the employer under this act, and that the employer, for a period of up to three years, will pay the employees in accordance with the Texas Payday Law. Because of the high cost of such surety bonds, the requirement that an employer furnish such security could well cause the failure of a business. Additionally, failure to deposit the bond required could result in an order from a court that the employer cease doing business until the bond is furnished.
