Employment law is a broad area encompassing all areas of the employer/employee relationship. The general rule in Nevada is that employment is “at will.” This means that employers and employees have the flexibility to engage in or refrain from employment for any reason or no reason, as long as that reason is not illegal. Employment regulations arise from a patchwork of federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions that limit the general “at will” employment rule. Many employment laws (such as minimum wage regulations) were enacted as protective labor legislation. Other employment laws, such as those prohibiting discrimination, arose in response to social inequality and the ideal of equal opportunity.
