What is Misclassification? Worker misclassification occurs when an employer incorrectly classifies a worker as a non-employee. Consequently, employers do not remit the appropriate amount of Federal and state employment taxes, and workers may not receive unemployment insurance benefits or the appropriate protections afforded to them as employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Misclassifications can result from erroneous interpretation of the rules or from intentional disregard of the law. For assistance in correctly classifying a worker contact Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation Contributions Office at 775-684-6393.
 
Professional Employer Organizations (PEO): NRS 616B691(1) was amended in 2015 to deem a client company of an employee leasing company to be the employer of the employees it leases for the purposes of Chapter 612 of NRS, which pertains to unemployment compensation. The law change requires each client company to register individually for unemployment insurance. The client company, as the employer, has primary responsibility for submitting all required quarterly UI tax and wage reports, for paying all UI taxes due, and for responding to notices from the Employment Security Division.
  It is against Federal Law to file for and receive benefits for Unemployment Insurance (including Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) and State Extended Benefits (SEB)) at the same time as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).
PLEASE NOTE: If you file for and receive benefits from both programs at the same time, you will be disqualified and liable for the overpayment. This may also constitute fraud which is a felony in Nevada.
