Bill H.B. 110

This bill amends Montana Workers’ Compensation Statutes to clarify the grounds on which an independent contractor exemption certificate may be revoked such that the Department of Labor and Industry (“Department”) may revoke an independent contractor exemption certificate after determining that the certificate holder:

(a) made misrepresentations in the application affidavit or certificate renewal form;

(b) altered or amended the application form, the renewal application form, other supporting documentation required by the Department, or the independent contractor exemption certificate;

(c) failed to cooperate with the Department in providing information relevant to the continued validity of the holder’s certificate; or

(d) does not have an independently established business as required by Montana workers’ compensation law regarding independent contractor certification.
