Nevada Minimum Wage Laws

As of 2023, Nevada's minimum wage depends on whether an employer provides health benefits. The rate is $10.25 per hour with health benefits and $11.25 per hour without. This state-specific minimum wage adjusts annually based on inflation.


Meal & Rest Breaks

In Nevada, employers must provide a meal break of at least 30 minutes for any work period of 8 continuous hours. Additionally, employees are entitled to a 10-minute rest break for each 4 hours worked, or major fraction thereof.

2 Years

Filing Claims

Employees in Nevada must file a claim for unpaid overtime wages within two years of the wage violation occurring, according to state labor laws. This timeframe matches the federal standard but is specific to claims filed under state jurisdiction.


Nevada Overtime Pay Laws

Under Nevada law, overtime is required to be paid at one and a half times the regular pay rate for hours worked over 40 in a workweek or over 8 hours in any workday, unless a 10-hour day, 4-day workweek has been established. This daily overtime provision is unique to Nevada, distinguishing it from federal regulations.

Daily Overtime

Protections for workers

Nevada's overtime law uniquely mandates that any hours worked beyond 8 hours in a 24-hour period must be paid at an overtime rate, unless the employee is on a scheduled 10-hour shift for 4 consecutive days. This law is specifically designed to address the state's 24-hour entertainment and service industries.
