- Nevada's courts use the federal economic realities test for determining whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor under the state's minimum wage law. The minimum wage statute also establishes a three-part test that presumes a worker is an independent contractor if the worker satisfies certain criteria. See Wage and Hour.
- Nevada uses a "normal work" test to determine whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor under the state's workers compensation law. See Workers' Compensation.
- Nevada uses an ABC test to determine independent contractor status under its Unemployment Compensation Law. See Unemployment Insurance.
