Nevada Grants Parental Leave for School Events

470px-Japanese_Road_sign_(Pedestrians_Only).svg Nevada has extended FMLA-type leave to parents, guardians, and custodians of children to attend school events or to volunteer at school. The leave is not a large amount, four hours per year to be taken in a minimum of 1-hour segments, and like the FMLA it need not be paid and is only required of employers of at least 50 employees. The new statute (which can be found here) also protects employees from retaliation for exercising rights under the statute and provides that the State Labor Commissioner can restore lost wages or benefits, award damages in the amount of those lost wages or benefits, and order reinstatement.
