  • Nevada currently does not require state family and medical leave for employees of private sector employers. See Family and Medical Leave.
  • Employers that grant leave to employees for sickness or disability must extend the same benefits to pregnant employees. In addition, a leave of absence may be considered a reasonable accommodation for pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions. See Pregnancy Leave and Accommodation.
