If I pay them either $13.25 per hour or $15 per hour. Am I required to pay them overtime of $19 per Hour and $22 per hour. Over 40 hours. My company is based in Nevada. I only have 1 employee and myself.
Generally yes. Federal law requires that hourly-paid employees be paid overtime, at a rate of one-and-one-half times their regular rate of pay, for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. If your business does less than $500,000 gross in business per year, however, you may be exempt from federal...View More

I have been working at my company for over 6 months and now they are trying to cut my pay in half, and even more than that and expecting me to take on more responsibility. And say I have till Monday to sign it or I cant come back to work. Is this legal? Can they do this with no prior notice???
Employees are either “at will” or they have a contract. At will employees can quit when they want and the company can fire or layoff an employee when it wants, so long as the termination isn’t due to discrimination, retaliation or another illegal reason. It sounds like you are an employee...View More

The general rule for travel time pay is that you must be paid for travel during your work day (ex. from work location 1 to work location 2) but not for travel to your first site for the day or travel home after your last site of the day. If travel to the out-of-town location you mentioned is the...View More

However, if your friend suspects she was fired because she had COVID or for a discriminatory reason (i.e. based on race, sex, age, disability, or religion), then she should consult a Nevada...View More

A friend of mine informed me that their wife's employer threatened to fire their employees if they posted on social media that there was a positive covid-19 case at their store. Some of the employees are worried about sharing this information because they feel the public has a right to know... View More
Twitter might be a good medium for that. If the post were to a public health agency, the employer would be violating Section 1102.5 of the California Labor Code which prohibits terminations for complaints to government agencies.
Employee does not want to endorse back of check to have family member deposit/cash for them. They want their paycheck made payable directly to their relative who does not work for the company. Employee is not an independent contractor.
