New Nevada Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act

Are You in Compliance with the New Nevada Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act?
By: Melissa Marsh, M
A, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

Did you know that Nevada employers have a new legal obligation to pregnant employees? On June 2, 2017, the Nevada Pregnant Workers’ Fairness Act (SB 253) was adopted and it applies to employers with 15 or more employees. Notice requirements under this bill went into effect on June 2, 2017, and the remainder of the Act becomes effective on October 1, 2017.

The Act requires that employers must give certain notices to all employees and additional notices to pregnant employees within a specific timeline of learning about the pregnancy.

According to labor attorney, Molly Malone Rezac with Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C.:

there are three specific times when notice must be provided:

  1. The employer shall post the notice in a conspicuous place at the place of business of the employer that is located in an area accessible to employees.
  2. The employer shall provide the notice to all new employees.
  3. The employer shall provide the notice (again) to an employee, within 10 days after the employee notifies their immediate supervisor that they are pregnant.
