Nevada Wage Payment Timing Requirements

Filed under Office & HR.

Employers in Nevada must comply with these state rules regarding the timing and frequency of wage payments.

Employees in Nevada must be paid at least semimonthly on regular paydays, with wages for the first 15 days of the month paid by 8 a.m. on the last day of the month and wages for the last half of the month paid by 8 a.m. of the 15th day of the following month.

Wages may be paid more frequently.

Special contracts with different conditions are permissible, but they may not be imposed as a condition of employment.

Nevada employers whose principal place of business is located, and whose payroll is prepared, outside of the state may designate one or more days in each month as fixed paydays for paying wages to persons employed in a bona fide executive, administrative or professional capacity, outside sales personnel and supervisors, except for supervisors whose wages are determined under a collective bargaining agreement.

An agreement in writing is required of an employee for the employer to make some disposition of the employee's wages other than immediate payment.

Employees absent on payday must be paid within five days after written demand.
