Nevada Exempt Employees: What you need to know

Under Nevada's overtime law, when employees earn less than 11/2 times the minimum wage rate, the employees must receive 11/2 times their wages whenever they work more than 40 hours in any scheduled week or more than 8 hours in any workday, unless by mutual agreement the employees work a scheduled 10 hours per day for 4 calendar days within any scheduled workweek.
