  • 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 Minimum Wage.
  • 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.
