Nevada Minimum Wage & Daily Overtime to Increase

Minimum wage in the state of Nevada will be increasing to $12.00 an hour starting July 1, 2024.

Nevada Ballot Question 2, passed by voters in November 2022, eliminates the two-tier minimum wage system which provided a reduction in the required minimum wage if an employer offered qualifying health benefits. For information on overtime changes and to print free minimum wage and overtime bulletins and postings, please select the Minimum Wage and Overtime Bulletins and/or Employer Postings - Required Postings under Important Links on this page.
