- Nevada courts use a specific definition of "good cause" to analyze claims for wrongful termination where the employee was protected by an express or implied employment contract. See Termination for Cause.
- Nevada employers are prohibited from disciplining or terminating employees for their lawful used of products outside the employer's premises, under certain circumstances. See Discipline or Termination for Lawful Use of Products.
- In addition to its expansion of protected categories, Nevada law also proscribes retaliation against certain individuals for opposing discriminatory practices or assisting in the investigations of discriminatory practices. See Anti-Retaliation Legislation.
- Certain Nevada employees have a property interest in their occupations and thus, are due advance notice if they are to be terminated from their positions. See Layoff Notice.
