Question of the Week: What Are the New Daily Overtime Rates for Nevada?

This week’s question comes from Mark, a business owner. We read that the minimum wage in Nevada will increase on July 1, 2010. We know that we must pay weekly and daily overtime if the employee’s hourly wage is below a certain rate. What are the new daily overtime rates for Nevada? Employers must pay 1½ times an employee’s regular wage rate whenever an employee who is paid less than 1½ times the applicable minimum wage rate works more than forty hours in any workweek or more than eight hours in any workday. Michael Tanchek, Labor Commissioner for the Department of Business and Industry, State of Nevada, announced recently that new wage rates, below which daily overtime may be applicable, are effective as of July 1, 2010. The rates are $10.875 per hour for employees to whom qualifying health benefits have been made available by the employer and $12.375 for all other employees. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any further questions on the Nevada daily overtime rate.
