Employers in Montana must comply with these state rules on providing service letters for former employees.

In Montana, employers must furnish fired employees, upon their demand, a written statement detailing the reasons for their discharge. Employers who fail to provide the statement within a reasonable period of time are prohibited from furnishing any statement of the reasons for the discharge to any person. Employers who violate these provisions may be sued by the fired employees for damages and may be subject to criminal penalties.

Montana law does not limit the civil damage liability of private employers who disclose employment information about a former or current employee's employment-related performance to a prospective employer upon request of the prospective employer or former or current employee.
