A home care worker who works more than three and one-half hours must receive a permitted rest period equal to 10-minutes for every 4 hours worked. So, whenever feasible, workers can take rest breaks in the middle of each work day. Also, the rest periods are counted as the hours worked.
No. Nevada labor laws do not require home care providers to provide workers with severance pay. Severance pay is a payment that home care providers offer workers if they are terminated or dismissed from employment.
However, if the employer opts to provide severance pay, they must comply with the employment contract terms or policy.
Nevada State Law entitles home care workers whose time and half wages are less than $10.88 per hour and who receive Essential Health Benefits (EHB), which are to be paid overtime whenever they work for more than 8 hours in 24 hours.
