Nevada has expanded its laws that provide protections for victims of domestic violence to include victims of sexual assault as of January 1, 2024. The laws require employers of all sizes to provide up to 160 hours of leave in a 12-month period and reasonable accommodations for victims. The law doesn’t require that the leave be paid, but employers should consider how they treat similar leaves. Employees are entitled to these protections for themselves or when a family or household member is the victim, as long as the employee is not the alleged perpetrator.
Employers are required to post the Nevada Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Victims’ Leave Bulletin in a conspicuous location in each workplace maintained by an employer.
