Nevada Overtime: What you need to know

Under Nevada's overtime law, when an employee earns less than 11/2 times the minimum wage rate, the employee must receive 11/2 times his or her wages whenever he or she works more than 40 hours in any scheduled week or more than 8 hours in any workday, unless by mutual agreement the employee works a scheduled 10 hours per day for 4 calendar days within any scheduled workweek. When an employee earns at least 11/2 times the minimum wage rate, the employee must receive 11/2 times his or her wages whenever he or she works more than 40 hours in any scheduled week, but not for working over 8 hours in a day (NV Rev. Stat. Tit. 53 Sec. 608.018et seq.). Federal law requires overtime pay only after 40 hours in a workweek, so employers covered by both federal and state law must follow the state law to the extent it is more favorable to employees.
