Paying Terminated Employees in Nevada
Employers in Nevada must comply with these state requirements when making the final wage payment to terminated employees.
In Nevada, when an employer discharges an employee, the wages and compensation earned and unpaid at the time of discharge become due and payable immediately.
When an employee resigns or quits, the wages and compensation earned and unpaid at the time of resignation or quitting must be paid no later than the day on which the employee would have regularly been paid the wages or compensation, or seven days after the employee resigns or quits, whichever is earlier.
If an employer fails to pay within three days after the wages or compensation of a discharged or quitting employee becomes due, the wages or compensation of the employee continue at the same rate from the day he or she was discharged or quit until paid or for 30 days, whichever is less.
