The Nevada Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age (40 years and older), disability, national origin, or gender identity unless such factors constitute a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ), i.e., is necessary in order to perform the job in question. In addition, employers are prohibited from printing or publishing job notices or advertisements indicating a discriminatory preference, limitation, or specification, unless such discrimination is a BFOQ. Employers with 15 or more employees are covered by the law (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 613.310 et seq.).
The law also specifically prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on a disability that requires the use of an aid or appliance, including the use of a service animal (NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 613.330(5)-(7)).
