I was doing some research for a friend and I find some of the labor laws quite confusing... From what I can gather, Nevada requires that all non-exempt employees get paid overtime after 40 hours, and effective September 1st, any non-exempt employee making less than $9.50 per hour receive overtime after 8 hours a day...However, I don't know if the job that my friend has is considered non-exempt or not. She works in one of those Payday Loan places. It doesn't say anything in any of the descriptions about that kind of work as being exempt. She has been working there for about 4 months now and she didn't sign any papers stating no overtime or days of rest restrictions. She has been forced to work 6 days a week for the last 5 weeks, and she works 8:30am to about 7:00pm. She is the only one in the office, and she does not get to leave for lunch since there is nobody to cover. She puts in, on average, about 60 hours a week, and she is only compensated straight time... Anyone that could shed some light or head me in the right direction, it would be appreciated. Thanks.
