HR Reference Guide


As of July 1, 2021, some State employees are covered under Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA), see the Division of Human Resource Management, Labor Relations Unit page for more information.  If you are in a job classification currently covered under a CBA, some of the terms and benefits of your employment may be different than the provisions outlined on this page. Please consult your CBA or agency's human resource for further information.


An individual may not be placed into a position that will create a supervisory or managerial relationship or a direct line of authority to an employee if the employee is:

  • A spouse, child, parent or sibling of the individual;
  • The spouse of a child, parent or sibling of the person;
  • An aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, grandparent, grandchild or first cousin of the individual; or
  • In a dating relationship with the individual.

If a supervisor or manager becomes related or involved in a dating relationship after the supervisor and employee are already appointed, the employees' appointing authority must be notified within 10 working days.  The appointing authority shall take action to ensure that the employees do not continue to hold positions in which one of the employee's is in the direct line of authority of the other employee.

Except as otherwise provided in NRS 281.210 or NAC 284.375.
