New Nevada Laws Effective October 1, 2021

Volume: 20 | Issue: 57
September 2, 2021

As you know, the 81st Session of the Nevada Legislature resulted in several new laws Nevada employers must implement. Although a few of those new laws are already in effect, others go into effect October 1, 2021.

Some of the new laws that become effective October 1st are:

  • AB 190 – adds a new section to Nevada’s paid leave statute (NRS 608.0197) to provide for caregiver leave.
  • SB 293 – prohibits most employers (public and private) from seeking the wage/salary history of an applicant for employment, relying on the wage/salary history of an applicant to determine whether to offer employment or to determine the rate of pay for the applicant, or refusing to interview, hire, promote or employ an applicant or discriminate or retaliate against an applicant if the applicant does not provide wage/salary history.
  • AB 47 – amends Nevada’s statute on noncompetition agreements/provisions (NRS 613.195) by banning noncompete agreements/provisions for hourly employees.
  • AB 307 – requires employers to post a new notice by the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.

For a complete list of new laws and their effective dates, please review Volume 20, Issue 40 of the KZA Employer Report published on June 9, 2021.
