Nevada’s 24 Hour Overtime Rule
The Workday Re-Envisioned
Effective July 1, 2015, Nevada State Law entitles employees whose time and a half wages are less than
$10.88 per hour and who receive Essential Health Benefits (EHB) to be paid overtime whenever they
work more than 8 hours in a consecutive 24-hour period. The same applies for employees who do not
receive qualified health benefits but whose time and a half wages are less than $12.38 per hour.
Real World Example
In the following example, we’ll see that that although the employee worked only 8 hours each day,
they still managed to accrue overtime on both Tuesday and Wednesday.
The 24-Hour Period Explained
The 24-hour period begins at the first punch of the day. For example, if on Monday, an employee
punched in at 8am, then out at 4pm, any additional time accumulated past 4pm on Monday and before
8am on Tuesday would be considered overtime.
What are Essential Health Benefits?
Essential Health Benefits are certain benefits that all qualified health plans must provide. The Essential
