Montana will be raising the state’s minimum wage by fifteen cents an hour, effective January 1st, 2018. The increase will bring the new minimum wage amount to $8.30 per hour. The increase is based on cost of living expenses that is derived from the Consumer Price Index. Montana doesn’t allow tip credit or training wages, so the minimum wage is uniform for most employees. The only exemption specified by the 2018 Montana minimum wage poster is for businesses who aren’t covered by the FLSA whose annual gross sales are less than $110,000 (unless producing or moving goods between states).
The 2018 Montana minimum wage poster is available for free on the Montana Department of Labor and Industry website.
Other Labor posters for Montana in 2018 include the following:
- Montana Anti-Discrimination poster
- Montana Special Minimum Wage poster
- Montana Unemployment Insurance poster

Other posters that are suggested for Montana include the Child Labor Laws and the Wage Payment Act.
All of the 2018 Montana labor law posters are printable for free from the Montana Department of Labor and Industry website.
Aside from the state labor posters, employers should take care to post all the of the federal labor posting requirements. These include (but are not limited to) the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Equal Employment Opportunity, the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, OSHA, and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.
Posters should be displayed in a conspicuous location where employees will be able to read their rights, such as a break-room or a lobby. In some instances, it is also prudent to display certain labor posters where job applicants will also be able to view their rights as a potential employee.
