Montana State Resources for Employers

Industrial Insurance (Workman’s Comp)

Employers must provide workers’ compensation insurance defined in the Montana Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Disease Acts. Insurance may be purchased from insurers that are authorized in Montana, and have workers’ compensation included in their authority. Or, the department may grant an employer the ability to self-insure its workers’ compensation liabilities if it has the requisite financial ability to pay workers’ compensation indemnity and medical benefits. For more information, see:

State Unemployment

Montana’s Unemployment Insurance program is financed by employers through a payroll tax. Employers pay this contribution tax on gross wages paid to employees performing services in Montana, up to the wage base in effect for that year. The Unemployment Insurance contribution rate varies depending on the employer’s industry or experience rate and the Contribution Rate Schedule.
