  • Nevada's state minimum wage is calculated annually based on inflation statistics, and may be more than the current federal minimum wage in any given year. See Overview.
  • Deductions from wages are prohibited for any reason unless required or permitted by law (such as tax withholding) or court order (such as garnishment) or authorized in writing by the employee. See Deductions Above the Minimum Wage.
  • Garnishment of employee wages under court order is limited to a certain percentage of disposable earnings, and differs when the order is for child or other support. See Deductions Below the Minimum Wage.
  • Nevada's Constitution has a provision analogous to the federal Youth Opportunity Wage. See Subminimum Wages.
