Rules to be Observed by Employers
The Rules to be Observed by Employers poster has been revised with new information on posting requirements and paid sick leave. Private employers with over 50 employees must provide paid sick leave and detailed requirements are listed. The new effective date is July 1, 2019 and it must be posted in a visible and open area for employees on the employer’s premises and property.

Discrimination Notice
The new Discrimindation notice has been updated with information about discrimination and what constitutes discrimination in Nevada. This includes “discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, pregnancy, age, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity or expression, domestic relations and compensation or wages in any terms, conditions or privilege of employment.”

Nevada Minimum Wage
This new notice includes both current future minimum wages for employees in Nevada. Rates are effective July 1, 2019 and increase each year until July 1, 2024. The most current minimum wage increase is $7.25 for lower tier employers and $8.25 for higher tier employers.

Paid Leave
The Paid Leave poster has issued a new notice detailing employees rights when it comes to notifying employers of an injury or illness. Effective January 1, 2020, every private employer with more than 50 employees must provide paid leave to employees. It also states specifics on who qualifies for paid leave, how much is entitled, and when and how it can be used.

Sick Leave
The Sick Leave poster, effective May 15, 2019, is a new notice that specifies employee rights regarding employer notification of an injury or illness. The poster states that employers shouldn’t require employees to be physically present at work in order to notify them they are sick or injured and it may require employees to notify the employer when they are sick or injured and can’t report to work.

Be sure to update your posters as soon as possible to make sure your employees have accurate information and are aware of their rights. Failure to post new updates could result in fines.
