Settlement Document Guidance for Examiners – due to COVID-19 crisis
The Employment Relations Division (ERD) has set up an email address to receive settlement documents that are ready for department approval. This should help expedite approvals with so many claims examiners and ERD staff currently teleworking. Please send the documents with signatures of all parties to DLIERDWCANEmail@mt.gov.
In the event that you do not have the ability to provide the claims examiner signature at the time of submission, ERD staff will provide a conditional approval to expedite the process. However, the final documents with all signatures are required to be submitted to the department (electronically is fine) within 10 calendar days of department conditional approval.
