Nevada does not have a separate minimum wage for tipped workers, and employers may not count an employee’s tips as a credit towards their minimum wage obligation.
Non-exempt employers must pay overtime at a rate of 1 ½ times the regular rate of pay to employees who work in excess of 40 hours in one workweek.
The federal overtime rule stipulates that the minimum salary requirement for administrative, professional, and executive exemptions is $684 per week, or $35,568 per year.
If an employee normally earns less than 1 ½ times the minimum wage, they must be paid the overtime rate when they work more than 8 hours in a day.
Employers must provide a meal period of at least 30 minutes for employees who work 8 consecutive hours.
Employers must provide a paid break of at least 10 minutes for every 4 hours worked.
