Be sure to check Issue 27 of the KZA Employer Report for other new bills. The summary below supplements Issue 27 with an additional bill that has now become law. If you have questions about this or other bills, please contact a KZA attorney.
AB 244 – Litigation, medical exams. This bill repeals NRS 52.380 which addresses the presence of an observer during a mental or physical examination required of a party to a civil litigation matter; the Nevada Supreme Court found NRS 52.380 unconstitutional in 2021. The bill then seeks to establish “substantive rights” for a person compelled to submit to a mental or physical examination in a civil litigation matter and authorizes such a person to file a lawsuit and seek injunctive relief if those rights are violated. It became effective on June 15, 2023, and applies to examinations conducted on or after that date.
