(Helena, MT) The Department of Labor and Industry announced today that the Unemployment Insurance Contribution Rate Schedule will be adjusted from schedule 7 to schedule 6, resulting in a decrease in many Montana employer’s contribution rates for 2013. “This is good news for Montana employers, both large and small, as we continue our economic recovery in the state”, said Labor Commissioner Keith Kelly. “UI benefits provide a critical financial safety net for Montana’s unemployed workers, and as more Montanans return to work the demand for those benefits decreases, in turn lowering the rate schedule.” Montana_State_Insurance_Rates-Decline
