New year, new laws. There are two, in particular, that will impact Nevada entrepreneurs and business leaders as they plan for the future.
1: The Nevada Minimum Wage Increase Initiative kick starts a series of increases to the minimum wage through 2024. The minimum wage is expected to top out at $12. This is what the incremental increases to the minimum hourly wage (for employees not offered health insurance) over the next five years will look like:
- 2020: $9.00
- 2021: $9.75
- 2022: $10.50
- 2023: $11.25
- 2024: $12.00
2: AB 132 prohibits employers from denying employment to candidates who test positive for marijuana in pre-employment drug screens. There are some exceptions to the rule.
The NNBV article states, “Employees such as drivers or heavy equipment operators can have their job offers revoked for a negative test — although businesses still could be legally challenged over an offer termination.”
