Changes to Nevada Minimum Wage
Hi, I'm the QuickBooks Gal. Today's Quicklet is a reminder to those of you who process your own payroll that on July 22, 2007 the new Federal Minimum Wage Law took effect.
There are several guidelines that we employers should be aware of now in order to assure proper compliance. In addition, many state or local statutes may have been revised, so you might want to check with your state's labor commission regarding the new Federal guidelines and any additional state regulation that may apply.
Here in Nevada, state minimum wage regulations are impacted by a law that became effective on July 1, 2007. If you do not use a payroll company such as ADP, Odyssey Business Services, or Payroll Systems of Nevada, you should make sure that you understand the new statutes with particular regard to how hourly overtime is calculated in order to assure that you are in compliance.
I've put a link on my blog for Nevada employers who want more information on the new state regulations. In Nevada, follow this link to the Nevada Office of The Labor Comissioner for more information about how these new laws will affect your employees and how you must comply.
That's it for now...I hope you find this information helpful. Join me next time for another in our series of Quicklets, informational podcasts about QuickBooks and bookkeeping related topics. If you have questions or suggestions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm Jayne Miller, The QuickBooks Gal. Thanks for listening.
