  • Montana's state minimum wage is calculated annually based on inflation statistics and may be more than the current federal minimum wage in any given year. See Overview.
  • Deductions from wages are prohibited for any reason unless required or permitted by law (such as tax withholding) or court order (such as garnishment) or authorized in writing by the employee. See Deductions Below the Minimum Wage.
  • Subminimum wages are allowed for certain types of workers and in certain businesses not governed by the FLSA, but are closely regulated. See Subminimum Wages.
