Nevada Wage and Hour Lawsuits

Nevada EmploymentUnder 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.

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 Overtime Lawsuits

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 Misclassification 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.

We have been watching, both prior to the US Presidential election and the aftermath, the discord between the Republicans and the Democrats. The gridlock extends to judicial appointments. The result is scores of vacancies on judicial benches across the country, and this is most evident in the state of Nevada where there are no fewer than three active vacancies in Nevada district courts. Judges who have retired are available to be called in as needed, but that can’t last forever. Last year, in Nevada, a brief judicial emergency was declared.
