Nev. Admin. Code § 284.255 - Holidays: Holiday pay
1. For the purpose of this section, "holiday pay" means payment for a holiday at a nonexempt employee's normal rate of pay plus the differential rate of pay for the shift, when applicable, or compensatory time at a straight-time rate.
2. Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (c) of subsection 3 and subsections 5 and 7, a full-time nonexempt employee whose base hours are 40 hours per week or 80 hours biweekly is entitled to receive 8 hours of holiday pay for any holiday that he or she is in paid status during any portion of his or her shift immediately preceding the holiday.
3. Except as otherwise provided in subsections 5 and 7:
(a) A full-time nonexempt employee whose base hours exceed 40 hours per week or 80 hours biweekly and who is in paid status during any portion of his or her shift immediately preceding a holiday is entitled to receive holiday pay equal to the pay he or she receives for his or her average workday. For the purposes of this paragraph:
(1) The average workday of a nonexempt employee is determined by dividing the total base hours of work per year by 2,088 and multiplying the quotient by 8.
(2) A firefighter assigned to a 24-hour shift shall be deemed to work 56 hours per week and 2,912 hours per year.
(b) A part-time nonexempt employee is entitled to receive holiday pay when he or she is in paid status during any portion of his or her shift immediately preceding the holiday if a holiday occurs on a normally scheduled workday of the employee. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, if such an employee is not required to work his or her normally scheduled workday on the holiday, the amount of holiday pay must equal the amount that he or she would have been paid if there had not been a holiday, but may not exceed the equivalent of his or her pay for 8 hours of work.
(1) Full-time nonexempt employee with an innovative workweek agreement may earn additional holiday pay on an hour-for-hour basis for any hours he or she works in excess of the holiday pay provided in paragraph (a) and in subsection 2, not to exceed the number of hours in his or her established workday as set forth in his or her innovative workweek agreement.
(2) Part-time nonexempt employee may earn holiday pay on an hour-for-hour basis for any hours he or she works on a holiday, not to exceed the number of hours in his or her established workday.
4. If a holiday occurs on the regularly scheduled workday of a nonexempt employee and his or her normal schedule of work is more than 8 hours, he or she must be in paid status or be placed on leave without pay for any difference between his or her holiday pay and his or her normal work schedule. An appointing authority may adjust the work schedule of such an employee for the week during which the holiday occurs in lieu of placing the employee on paid leave or leave without pay.
5. A nonexempt employee who is scheduled to work on a holiday shall report any absence from duty and the reason therefor to his or her supervisor or designated representative as prescribed in writing by the agency. An employee who does not work on that holiday and who fails to report his or her absence to his or her supervisor or a designated representative pursuant to this subsection is not eligible to receive holiday pay.
6. A nonexempt employee whose employment begins on a holiday is eligible to receive holiday pay pursuant to subsections 2 and 3 if he or she is in paid status during his or her scheduled shift.
7. A nonexempt employee whose employment is terminated:
(a) The day immediately preceding a holiday is not entitled to receive holiday pay for that holiday.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (c) of subsection 3, on a holiday on which he or she is working must be paid holiday pay for the actual hours he or she works on the holiday. If a nonexempt employee gives notice that he or she is terminating his or her employment on a holiday and he or she is not scheduled to work on the holiday, the last day on which he or she works or is in paid status is his or her date of termination.
8. The agency that lists a nonexempt employee as an "employee of record" on a holiday is responsible for the payment of holiday pay for that holiday to that employee. For the purposes of this subsection, an "employee of record" is a person employed by the state agency that is required to claim the person as an employee of the agency.
9. The salary of an exempt classified or exempt unclassified employee is not affected by a holiday.
