Taxicab Drivers' Rights to Nevada Minimum Wage
Taxi drivers in Nevada are entitled to be paid at least the minimum hourly wage. That means their pay for each hour worked must currently equal at least $8.25 an hour or, if certain medical insurance is made available, $7.25 an hour. That hourly rate in Nevada must be paid IN ADDITION to whatever tips the driver earns.
For example, if the driver works a 12 hour shift and takes a 1 hour break, he has worked 11 hours and must earn, from HIS share of the fares collected and AFTER paying for any required gas, at least 11 times $7.25 or $8.25 or $79.75 or $90.75 for that shift. Many taxi drivers may not be receiving that minimum payment.
It is possible that if you are covered by a union contract you may not have to be paid the minimum hourly wage, but please call this office anyway to discuss your situation even if you work under a union contract.
If you are a Nevada taxi driver who may have not been paid proper minimum wages or other money you are owed by your taxi company please call us to discuss your situation.
