(b) "EMPLOYEES ONLY" means the contractor carries workers' compensation coverage on employees and is registered to have employees.

(c) "LEASED EMPLOYEES" means the contractor uses employees of a professional employer organization, as defined at 39-8-102, MCA. These employees are presumably covered with workers' compensation and unemployment insurance through the leasing company.
