Nevada minimum wage unchanged for 2015

Nevada’s minimum wage and overtime requirements will remain unchanged for the upcoming year.

State Labor Commissioner Thoran Towler said Tuesday that the minimum wage will remain $7.25 per hour for workers who received health benefits from their employer. The rate for employees who do not have employer-paid health insurance is $8.25.

A 2006 voter-approved constitutional amendment requires Nevada’s minimum wage to be recalculated each year by comparing the amount of increases in the federal minimum wage over $5.15 per hour, or, if greater, to the cost of living.

Daily overtime thresholds, which are tied to the minimum wage, also will remain the same in 2015.
