A constitutional amendment approved by voters requires Nevada to raise its minimum wage above the federal level, which it did on July 1 in two tiers. State employers need to ensure they're following the new rates and also posting a revised notice.
July 8, 2010 (Newswire.com) - ONTARIO, Calif.-Personnel Concepts, pacesetter and pioneer in the labor law compliance poster industry, advises employers in Nevada that the state's minimum wage took a constitutional hike on July 1, 2010, and that posting the revised "Rules To Be Observed By Employers" minimum-wage notification is mandatory.
Nevada uses a two-tiered minimum wage, one for companies offering health benefits and one for those not offering such benefits. On July 1, the minimum wage for companies offering health coverage went from $6.55 to $7.25 an hour. For all others, the rise was from $7.55 to $8.25 an hour.
Also effective July 1, employees with health benefits earning less than $10.875 per hour and employees earning less than $12.375 per hour without health benefits must be paid overtime if they work more than eight hours in a 24-hour period.
Personnel Concepts has updated its Nevada Space Saver-1 All-On-One State and Federal Labor Law Poster accordingly and also created a replacement minimum-wage panel, which will be provided to subscribers to update existing posters. Both are also available for purchase.
"Nevada's minimum wage hikes are tied by a constitutional amendment to rise above the national rate, so Nevada is one of the few states to raise its minimum this year during times of economic trouble," said Robert Leland, director of research for Personnel Concepts. "Illinois is another, and that raise was scheduled three years ago."
