The Nevada Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived disability (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 613.310 et seq.). The law applies to employers with 15 or more employees, and to labor unions and employment agencies. Nonprofit private clubs, the United States, and Native American tribes are excluded from the definition of "employer."
“Disability” defined. “Disability” is defined as any physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity, a record of such an impairment, or being regarded by others as having such an impairment. The phrase "impairment that substantially limits a major life activity" has been amended to expressly include, without limitation, being infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
