About the Workers' Compensation Regulations Bureau

The Workers' Compensation Regulations Bureau is a multi-faceted organization with responsibility for various areas of regulation, primarily in the field of workers' compensation. As you will see if you scroll through our functions, our responsibilities range from educating employers about Montana’s Workers’ Compensation requirements and enforcing compliance, licensing professional employer organizations, registering construction contractors, establishing medical fee schedules, issuing independent contractor determinations and a whole lot of areas in-between. If we can be of assistance to you in any of these areas, please e-mail us or visit the Contact Us page to find contact information on the specific area of assistance needed.
