Nevada Employee Lawsuits
Were you looking for Nevada Wrongful Termination lawsuits?
As with many other states, Nevada employee lawsuits tend to focus on wage and hour, misclassification and unpaid overtime complaints. Nevada overtime lawsuits and other employment concerns affect every industry, although much focus is on the tourism and gambling industries. Employees in Nevada have certain rights, including the right to proper regular and overtime wages. Employers who violate Nevada employment laws could face lawsuits.
Under Nevada Labor and Employment Laws, Nevada's minimum wage, which is currently $8.25 per hour, applies to all private sector employees with a few exceptions. The minimum wage is $7.25 per hour where qualifying health benefits are provided by the employer. Employees who work at least eight continuous hours must be given an unpaid meal period of 30 uninterrupted minutes. Furthermore, paid rest periods of 10 minutes for each 3.5 hours continuously worked must also be provided.
Nevada Wage and Hour Lawsuits
Although much of Nevada's economy is involved in tourism and gambling, employers are not permitted to pay less than minimum wage in situations where employees earn tips. This means restaurant and casino employees must be paid minimum wage, even if they receive tips while at work.
Nevada labor and employment law states that non-exempt employees must be paid at one-and-one-half their regular pay for all hours worked in excess of eight hours in one workday or 40 hours in a scheduled workweek, excepting employees who agree to work four 10-hour days in one workweek. Employees who are already compensated at not less than one-and-one-half times the minimum wage rate may be exempted from overtime wages.
Nevada Overtime Lawsuits
In some cases, employers misclassify employees as being exempt from overtime pay. Exemption from overtime pay is based on the actual duties performed while at work and not on the job title. If an employee has a managerial or administrative job title but performs work of an hourly employee, that worker has the right to overtime pay.
