50 Employees in Nevada

We are quickly approaching the magic 50 employee number. Through all of my research, I have yet to find a clear answer on what we have to do once we reach this number. I am aware of the FMLA and the Affordable Care Act, but wondering if there is anything else I am missing.

Kudos to you for approaching the magical number. Laws soon to apply to you are the FMLA and ACA as you mention. If you’re a federal contractor, you should also be aware of the Employer Information Report EEO-1 which requires specified employment data be submitted annually to the EEOC.

Of course, there are quite a few regulations that you should already be aware of such as the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).

It’s also important to mention that if you don’t already have an employee handbook now is the time to create one. An employee handbook is a comprehensive resource for employees ensuring they are aware of company policies including codes of conduct, timekeeping/pay/overtime, benefits, attendance, performance management, discipline, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, workplace violence, drug and alcohol abuse, smoking, complaints/concerns procedure, safety, and electronic communication. Employee handbooks can also ensure compliance with published statements requirements.
