In Nevada, posters outlining the state and federal labor and employment laws need to be clearly posted in the state’s workplace. Employers can place them in any visible area that all of the employees have access to in the workplace. Some popular areas for posting the information are work rooms, break rooms or any other place employees tend to gather before, during or after work.
The information found on the Nevada posters is very important for employees. They give them the information they need to know their rights concerning their employment. The posters also provide the protocol for making complaints or filing grievances against employers who violate employees’ rights – including the contact information for the appropriate state and federal agencies. Employers also benefit from these posters, however. They can use the information on the posters to help them know what they need to do to make sure they are not violating their employees’ rights. They can also use the information to find specific details in case they have questions about specific laws such as what is required of them in terms of the Family and Medical Leave Act.
Nevada posters need to have information about both state and federal laws. The state posters include information on the following laws and employee rights: discrimination, minimum wage, lie detector tests, workers’ compensation, workers’ compensation part 2, emergency numbers, OSHA and unemployment insurance. Federal laws that must be covered are USERRA – Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law, Federal Minimum Wage, Employee Polygraph Protection Act, Family and Medical Leave Act and OSHA – Job Safety and Health Protection.
It is the employer’s responsibility to make sure they have the posters posted, but they also need to make sure they have the most current information on their posters. This is especially important because labor laws sometimes change as often as once a year.
