Nevada Labor Commissioner Issues Guidance on New Law Requiring Mandatory Paid Time Off

By SHLC on November 7, 2019 in Uncategorized

On June 19, 2019, Sutton Hague posted a blog post reviewing new Nevada employment legislation. The blog post included a discussion of Senate Bill 312, which takes effect on January 1, 2020, and requires Nevada private employers of 50 or more employees to provide paid time off (“PTO”), which must accrue at a rate of no less than 0.01923 hours of PTO for each hour of work performed.

In October 2019, the Nevada Labor Commissioner issued an Advisory Opinion and FAQ discussing the new PTO law and providing guidance on how the Labor Commissioner’s office will be interpreting and enforcing it. Nevada employers are strongly encouraged to become familiar with SB 312 and the Labor Commissioner’s guidance, and to consult with qualified employment law counsel well in advance of the new year to be prepared for the law to take effect.

Read the Advisory Opinion and FAQ here.

Sutton Hague will be discussing this and other new Nevada employment laws in detail during a live webinar on December 4, 2019: “Employment Law Update for Nevada Employers for 2020.” To learn more and sign up for the webinar, visit our Events page.
