Indemnification: Uninsured Employers' Fund

Weidow v. Uninsured Employers' Fund [01/22/10] 2010 MTWCC 2 Where the uninsured employer was joined as a party to the action and participated in a department mediation and where the Court ordered the uninsured employer to be joined as a third-party respondent prior to trial, the statutory requirements of § 39-71-541(1), -(2)(a), MCA, have been met. Since the uninsured employer has not raised any arguments that he should not be ordered to indemnify the UEF, the Court will enter judgment ordering the uninsured employer to indemnify the UEF pursuant to § 39-71-541(2)(b), MCA.
Uninsured Employers Fund v. Frank Helstowski [5/23/00] 2000 MTWCC 29 Where court resolved credibility conflict to find injury did occur in uninsured employer's presence, UEF entitled to indemnification for compensation and medical benefits it paid to injured worker.
