Nevada state overtime laws require that all non-exempt Nevada employees be paid 1.5 times their regular hourly rate for overtime hours, which are any hours worked in excess of a 40-hour work week. In Nevada, the minimum wage is $8.25, so this means that the minimum rate of pay for overtime hours worked in Nevada is $12.38. It is very easy for employers to take advantage of a general lack of knowledge regarding overtime pay laws to illegally deny their employees overtime wages to which they are entitled. To help Nevada residents protect their rights as employees, the employment lawyers at Phillips Dayes Law Firm have provided this brief overview of Nevada overtime laws.

Nevada State Overtime Exemptions

Overtime pay laws in the state of Nevada closely follow the national overtime pay guidelines established by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). While most American workers are entitled to overtime pay, state and federal laws dictate that the following types of workers are exempt from overtime pay:

  • Executive
  • Administrative
  • Professional

In addition to employees who fall into the above categories, Nevada employees who work in the following types of positions may also be exempt from overtime pay:

  • Agriculture and farm workers
  • Workers who live at their place of employment
  • Outside salespeople
  • Workers in the transportation industry
