Author: Dana Krulewitz, Fisher Phillips


  • The Nevada Fair Employment Practices Act (NFEPA) protects individuals from discrimination by both private and public employers. See Nevada Fair Employment Practices Act.
  • Generally, employers may be held accountable for practices that discriminate against a legally protected class, whether purposefully discriminatory or merely having an unintended discriminatory effect. See Discriminatory Actions.
  • The NFEPA recognizes a greater number of protected classes than federal law. See Protected Classes.
  • Nevada has an equal pay law that prohibits discrimination in compensation. See Equal Pay.
