WORK CARDS

PROFESSIONAL SERVICE AND EXCELLENCE

Work card issuance is regulated by Nye County Ordinances and Nevada Revised Statutes.  The purpose of the work card is to regulate businesses, trades and professions that require a high degree of supervision.

If a work card is required for a position, the employer will supply a work card application to the applicant.  Employers must appear in person at Nye County Sheriff's Office locations to obtain work card applications to provide to employees.  


Common questions and concerns regarding the work card application can be found on the sample application at this link:
