Each year, the Nevada Department of Business and Industry releases revised versions of two wage and hour notices, and 2016 is no exception.
- The Nevada Minimum Wage Bulletin informs workers of the current minimum wage rate. For 2016, Nevada’s minimum wage rates remained unchanged: $7.25 per hour for workers receiving qualified health benefits, and $8.25 per hour for all other minimum wage workers.
- The Nevada Daily Overtime Bulletin explains that time-and-a-half pay for overtime work kicks in after non-exempt employees work more than 40 hours in in a single workweek. The Bulletin further details the OT wages for 2016, which are $10.875 per hour for workers receiving health benefits and $12.375 per hour for all other minimum wage workers.
These revised versions must be displayed by July 1, 2016.
Did Nevada’s 2016 Minimum Wage Rate Change?
No. The wage rates for both minimum wage and overtime remain at the same levels as 2015.
What Changed on the 2016 Minimum Wage and Daily Overtime Bulletins?
The big change employers need to know is that bulletins are dated. Each year these bulletins receive a new version, with the year displayed prominently for all of your workers to see.
If your workplace location displays last year’s version – even though the rates stayed the same – do you imagine you might receive phone calls from your Nevada locations?
In addition to the year changing, the bulletins also have a new website address, and the address for the agency’s Carson City office info changed.
