Nevada Overtime Law

Generally, under Nevada Overtime Law, an employer must pay time and one half of an employee's regular wage rate whenever an employee works more than 40 hours in any scheduled workweek. In addition, employees who are paid a base rate of one and one half times the minimum wage or less per hour may be entitled to overtime if they work more than 8 hours in any workday. There are a number of exemptions to this rule and federal wage and hour rules may apply. See NRS 608.018 for more information on exemptions.
