The Office of the Labor Commissioner oversees state labor laws and is part of the Nevada Department of Business and Industry. The Commissioner investigates complaints about unfair wages, minimum wage, overtime and other wage disputes. It also oversees standards about youth employees and hazardous working conditions.
The Nevada Department of Business and Industry requires employers to report to the Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration (NOSHA) about workplace accidents involving a fatality of one or more employees or the hospitalization of three or more employees within eight hours of learning about the accident. Workplace hazard reports in Nevada can be submitted online, by phone or by email.
Based in Henderson, Nevada, NOSHA applies to all public and private sectors of employment. Nevada OSHA has adopted these unique standards:
- Safety programs
- Steel Erection
- Ammonium Perchlorate and Photovoltaic
