In April 2022, the Nevada Department of Business and Industry published an updated Rules to Be Observed by Employers Bulletin to announce an increase in minimum wage rates to be effective July 1, 2022.

Nevada Minimum Wage Law Update

  • Minimum wage set to increase to $9.50 per hour for employees provided qualifying health benefits and $10.50 per hour if no such health benefits are provided.

Wage and Hour Exemptions

Employees may be exempt from wage and hour laws based on criteria associated with their salary, actual duties, and skills. Exempt employees neither receive overtime pay nor qualify for minimum wage. Nevada labor law defines these exemptions based on Executive, Administrative, or Professional status. Learn more here.

Nevada Labor Law Poster Update

All businesses within the State of Nevada must display the revised Rules to Be Observed by Employers Bulletin along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Nevada & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.

Order the Nevada Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
