Nevada’s minimum wage will increase again by 75 cents on July 1.

As approved in the 2019 Nevada Legislature, Assembly Bill 456 increases the minimum wage in increments of 75 cents annually through 2024.

The first increase occurred in 2020, from $7.25 an hour to $8 an hour for employees who are offered qualifying health benefits, and from $8.25 an hour to $9 an hour for employees not offered health benefits.

Beginning July 1, and lasting through June 30, 2022, the minimum wage rate will increase to $8.75 per hour and $9.75 per hour, respectively.

According to the Office of the Labor Commissioner, the increase also impacts daily overtime rates for the same period.

Employees who earn more than one and one-half times the minimum wage for both tiers — $13.125 an hour and $14.625, respectively — are eligible for overtime at one and one-half times their regular rate of pay for over 40 hours of work in a week.

Long-term, minimum wage will reach $11 per hour and $12 per hour, respectively, by July 1, 2024.Go for annual bulletins for minimum wage and overtime.
