A new law affecting all employers, regardless of size, will take effect January 1, 2018. If one of your employees, or his/her family member(s), is the victim of domestic violence, you will be required to allow him/her up to 160 hours (20 full-time days) off from work within a 12-month period. You are also required to affect the operations of your business if so requested by such an employee.
On June 2, 2017, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed the Nevada Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act (the “Act”) into law. Some of its provisions became effective immediately. The rest take effect on October 1, 2017. Regardless of the date, your business has just been impacted by additional rules mandating your treatment of employees.
