Celebrating 75 Years of Serving Nevada’s Legal, Business, Government, and Civic Communities

Nevada’s New Employment Laws:
New Do’s and Don’ts for Retail Employers

The 2021 Nevada Legislative Session, which adjourned late in the evening on May 31, 2021, produced several legal amendments impacting retail employers on key issues, including paid leave, an employee’s timeline for filing certain claims against employers, and an employer’s obligations regarding an applicant’s salary history. As the legal landscape for Nevada’s employers rapidly evolves, it is more important than ever that retail employers keep their leave policies and hiring practices (both external and internal) up to date. 

Daniel Aquino, an Of Counsel attorney in McDonald Carano’s Las Vegas office, explained the following four new legal developments in the July 2021 issue of Nevada News, a newsletter published by the Retail Association of Nevada.

  • State and Federal filing deadlines – AB 222
  • The salary history question is history – SB 293
