The minimum wage in Nevada is $10.50 per hour, which is higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Employers must pay their employees this hourly rate for all hours worked, regardless of whether the work is done on an hourly, salaried, or commission basis. However, tipped employees may be paid a lower hourly rate if their tips combined with their wages add up to at least the minimum wage.
If an employee works more than 40 hours in a week, they are entitled to overtime pay at a rate of 1.5 times their regular hourly rate. Nevada law also requires employers to provide employees with certain benefits, such as meal and rest breaks, vacation time, and sick leave.
The minimum wage in Las Vegas is scheduled to increase to $12 per hour in July 2024. For now it matches the same minimum wage as Nevada.
