Discharged employees. If a discharged employee, or an employee who quits his or her job, is not paid according to wage payment provisions, the employee's wages will continue at the same rate for up to 30 days (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 608.040 and Sec. 608.050).
Payment of wages. Under certain circumstances, an employer who violates wage payment provisions must, in addition to unpaid wages and penalties, pay a reasonable attorney's fee “to be taxes as costs of suit” (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 608.140). There is additional information on wage payment provisions.
