Any day appointed by the president as a legal holiday, except Veterans Day, is also a Nevada holiday. Local and state government offices, courts, public schools, and state colleges are closed on legal holidays (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 236.015).
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.
