Nevada law says that any day appointed by the President of the United States as a holiday, except Veteran’s Day, is a legal holiday in Nevada. On legal holidays, state and local governmental offices along with courts, public schools and state colleges are closed.

Nevada state law says that if January 1, November 11 or December 25 falls on a Saturday, the holiday is celebrated on Friday. If those dates fall on Sunday, the holiday is observed on Monday. Although it is not a legal holiday, Halloween must be moved to Friday if October 31 falls on a Saturday or to Monday if it falls on a Sunday. Nevada celebrates both Lincoln and Washington’s birthday on the third Monday in February as President’s Day. The Friday after Thanksgiving is a legal holiday known as Family Day in Nevada.

In Nevada, no private employers are required to provide paid holidays to employees. In addition, employers are not required to pay an employer more than their regular rate of pay on a legal holiday. Although they are not required to do so, most private employers still do provide paid holidays for their employees.
