Nevada law prohibits contractors on public works contracts from refusing to employ or to discharge from employment any person because of his or her race, color, creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, or age, or to discriminate against a person with respect to hire, tenure, advancement, compensation, or other terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of these factors.
Contracts negotiated between contractors and the state, or any of its political subdivisions, must contain contractual provisions to this effect. Contractors must also agree to insert this provision in all subcontracts, except for subcontracts for standard commercial supplies or raw materials (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 338.125).
