Nevada law prohibits employers from denying work opportunities to employees or applicants because they choose not to belong to a labor union. An employer or union cannot compel an employee to join a union or to go on strike “by any threatened or actual interference with his or her person, immediate family or property.”
The law also prohibits two or more people from conspiring to get someone fired, or prevent them from getting hired, because the person is not a member of the union “by inducing or attempting to induce any other person to refuse to work with such person.” Finally, any agreement signed in violation of these laws is “illegal and void,” and any strike or picketing used to cause an employer to make an agreement in violation of these laws is illegal.
These laws are often called “right to work” laws because they are designed to give individuals the ability to work without having to join a labor organization or be unduly influenced by it.
A person who is injured by the violation of these laws can sue the person or labor union responsible for the violation and obtain damages and/or injunctive relief.
