Nevada Labor Commissioner Issues Advisory Opinion On New Paid Leave Law – Senate Bill 312

Volume: 18 | Issue: 20
October 17, 2019

On October 4, 2019, the Nevada Labor Commissioner issued an Advisory Opinion on Nevada's new paid leave law, seeking to provide "as much as guidance as possible on SB 312." The new law becomes effective on January 1, 2020.

This Advisory Opinion answers many of the questions we have fielded from clients since the end of the Legislative session, and we encourage all employers to review it. In particular, the Labor Commissioner directly addresses the exemption for employers who already have paid leave policies.

If you have questions about the Advisory Opinion or the paid leave law or if you would like us to review your PTO policy to ensure compliance with the new law, please contact a KZA attorney.
