Have you ever been bonded

What does “have you ever been bonded” mean on a job application?

Andrew, I don’t think that’s right, but thanks for answering.

I have been a bonded employee a few times. For a courier job and as a home health worker. In both cases my employer did a criminal check to ensure I had no criminal record.

As I was dealing with legal documents in the one case, and being inside someone’s home in the other these employers do not hire people with criminal records. I assumed being bonded meant my records had been checked and my employer was guaranteeing that I was trust worthy and did not have a criminal past.

That’s my understanding anyway.
