Hello,

 

Nevada law does not define full-time as opposed to part-time employment status. Here is a link to Nevada law explaining Nevade labor definitions: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-608.html#NRS608Sec007

 

Full-time vs. part-time employment status is most frequently a classification used by employers to determine eligibility for employment benefits other than compensation. For example, employers may choose to provide paid time off for fullt-time employees and not part-time employees. Such employment benefits are not required, and not controlled by state law.

 

Absent an employment contract or agreement, your employer is not required to provide you with a certain number of hours to work, i.e. the employer can send you home. Unfortunately, if this happens often, you are in the position of prioritizing whether it is worth it for you to keep this job, and may prefer to seek other employment.

 

Best of luck to you. Kindly click accept so that I may receive credit for having responded. Thank you.
