Musicians in Montana May Be Exempt from Workers Compensation

In Montana,  new legislation is being introduced that will exempt workers compensation benefits for musicians.  Under the current system,  for a musician to play a show,  they have to be considered a hired worker of the company. This requires that workers compensation be provided.

Many musicians have come out against this stating that it is making it difficult to find work. Owners of businesses are hesitant to hire them because of this.  Some musicians believe that if the exemption were passed, that they would be better able to play shows.

This issue does bring up questions though on how a situation would be handled if a musician was injured while on the job.

If you or someone you know has been injured on the job please contact your Raleigh worker’s compensation lawyers of Scudder Seguin, PLLC at (919) 851-3311.
