Nevada Notices, Make Sure You’re Up to Date
Over the summer, Nevada has issued minimum wage updates and a new overtime bulletin. Nevada requires that employers post a number of notices in the workplace informing employees of their rights and obligations under the law. As usual, the posters must be hung in a conspicuous area where employees are likely to congregate or in multiple locations if a workplace is particularly large with multiple entrances, exits, and rest areas.
Before we get to the standard stuff like overtime bulletins and minimum wages, let’s talk about some of the changes Nevada employers need to be aware of. If an employer decides to terminate, reduce or modify any employee benefits then this decision must be posted conspicuously for employees to see. Likewise, if an employer intends to discontinue payments of premiums, for whatever reason, employees must be notified.
They must also post English and Spanish versions of Nevada Laws Prohibit Discrimination which outlines the various discriminatory practices that the are illegal. As of January 1, 2018 Nevada also issued a bulletin that employers are required to post regarding domestic violence and the Nevada Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for pregnancy.
Nevada’s new overtime bulletin was released in July of this year and stipulates that employees working more than their allotted 40 hours a week shall be paid 1 ½ times their wages.
