It’s that time of year again, folks! Nevada’s Annual Minimum Wage Bulletin and Annual Daily Overtime Bulletin for 2019 are now available. The bulletins were released this week in both English and Spanish by the Nevada Department of Business and Industry’s Office of the Labor Commissioner. The “posted” date on each bulletin has been updated to April 1, 2019.
No Changes to Minimum Wage or Daily Overtime
As in previous years, the wage rates on the 2019 Annual Minimum Wage Bulletin and Annual Daily Overtime Bulletin have not changed for the year beginning July 1, 2019. However, employers in Nevada should note that the bulletins are still required to be posted in the workplace.
