Montana: About This Handbook/Disclaimer and General Handbook Acknowledgement
We have added a Disclaimer that applies to Montana only. The Disclaimer for Montana differs from all other states as Montana is the only state in the nation where employees are not at will for the duration of their employment (absent a collective bargaining agreement).
In addition, you must accept the new General Handbook Acknowledgement for Montana and ask employees to sign and return the Receipt. This document is vital because the employees' signature is an acknowledgment of their receipt of the handbook, their obligation to comply with its terms and their acknowledgment of their at-will status, subject to the provisions of the Montana Wrongful Discharge Act. Procedures should be implemented to ensure that such signed acknowledgments are collected and retained in employees' personnel files.
