Case Synopsis

The Nevada Supreme Court affirmed the district court’s dismissal and judgment against claims made by a class of employees against their previous employer, HG Staffing, LLC. The Court made four major findings. First, the two-year limitations period applies to wage claims arising under NRS 608.016, NRS 608.018, NRS 680.020, and NRS 680.050. Second, a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) need not be signed by the parties or unexpired; mutual assent is enough to validate the agreement. Third, if claims for wages are already time barred, employees cannot try to penalize the employer under NRS 608.040. Finally, if an active CBA contains a provision addressing overtime pay, employees cannot enjoy the overtime benefits provided for waged employees in the Nevada Revised Statutes.
