The Nevada Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race or color (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 613.310 et seq.). The law applies to employers with 15 or more employees. Under the law, it is unlawful to:
• Fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any person, or to discriminate against any person with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of race or color.
• Limit, segregate, or classify employees in any way that would deprive any person of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect status as an employee, because of race or color.
• Discriminate against any person because of race or color in admission to, or employment in, any program established to provide apprenticeship or other training.
• Print or publish any advertisement for employment indicating any preference, limitation, specification, or discrimination based on race or color.
• Discriminate against any individual because he or she has opposed an unlawful employment practice, or has made a charge, testified, assisted, or participated in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under the Act.
