  • Nevada's state minimum wage varies depending on whether or not an employer provides qualifying health benefits. See Minimum Wage.
  • An employer must provide written notification of the annual rate adjustments to each of its employees. See Written Notice.
  • 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.
  • An employer may not use any tip income as an offset to the requirement to pay minimum wages. See Tip Credit.
  • Nevada's Constitution has a provision analogous to the federal Youth Opportunity Wage. See Subminimum Wages.
