If January 1, July 4, October 31, November 11, or December 25 falls on a Sunday, it is observed on the following Monday; if on a Saturday, it is observed on the preceding Friday (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 236.015et seq.).
There is nothing in Nevada law that requires private employers to provide paid holidays to their employees. However, most employers provide employees with several paid holidays.
