State Prevailing Wage Rates

If you have a question about complying with the prevailing wage regulations (occupations, payroll forms, payment of fringe benefits, travel or per diem, etc.) you should contact the Labor Standards Bureau Wage and Hour Unit.  Call (406) 444-5600 and ask to speak to a Prevailing Wage Compliance Specialist.
