NV: Law Grants Employment Protections for National Guard Members of Other States

Law Effective July 1, 2017

A new law in Nevada, effective July 1, 2017, grants certain employment protections for National Guard members of other states.

New Law
An employer may not terminate the employment of a member of the National Guard of another state who is employed in Nevada because the member assembles for training, participates in field training or active duty, or otherwise meets as required under the law of that state; or is ordered to active service or duty under the law of that state.

The new law also contains amended procedures regarding unlawful termination and relief for National Guard members found to have been unlawfully terminated.

Note: The amendatory provisions of the law do not apply to a member of the Nevada National Guard or the National Guard of another state whose employment in Nevada is terminated before July 1, 2017.

Background
Under current state law, the employer of a member of the Nevada National Guard is prohibited from terminating the member's employment because he or she (among other things) is ordered to active service or duty under state law.
