The Nevada Minimum Wage and Overtime Laws specifically set how much and when a worker must be paid.
The laws are set forth by state statute and non-exempt employers must comply with these laws. There are numerous exceptions to these laws based upon the type of employment, the classification of the job, the type and manner of compensation, and the size of the employer.
There are also federal wage laws pursuant to the Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that also set forth pay requirements from employers.
Nevada Overtime Pay Laws
The Nevada Overtime Law generally requires payment of overtime at one and one-half times the regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 8 in a day and 40 in a week.
An employer must pay their employees two times per month unless otherwise exempt. If payment of wages is twice a month, an employer must pay all wages, including overtime pay earned and unpaid before the first day of any month, not later than 8:00 a.m. on the 15th day of the month following the month in which the wages or compensation was earned.
Employers are responsible for establishing and maintaining regular paydays that will include payment of wages and all overtime pay earned.
If an employee is absent at the time and place of the payment of wages or compensation, an employer must pay the employee within five days of the employees demand for payment.
