"Fidelity bond" se usa más cuando se trata de empleados de Bolsas de Valores como se indica en este enlace:

A fidelity bond is a form of protection that covers policyholders for losses that they incur as a result of fraudulent acts by specified individuals. It usually insures a business for losses caused by the dishonest acts of its employees.

While called bonds, these obligations to protect an employer from employee-dishonesty losses are really insurance policies. These insurance policies protect from losses of company monies, securities, and other property from employees who have a manifest intent to cause the company loss. There are also many other forms of crime-insurance policies (burglary, fire, general theft, computer theft, disappearance, fraud, forgery, etc.) to protect company assets.


fidelity bond
A debt obligation serving to protect an employer from loss in the event that its employees cause damages through dishonest or negligent action. Insurance companies and securities firms are often required to possess a fidelity bond.
