Employee Time Off for Voting

Laws differ in each state, but most states protect an employee’s right to take time off to carry out civic duties like voting. State laws typically prohibit employers from punishing or firing employees for exercising civic rights. Company policy may also provide an employee with the right to take time off from work to vote.

The Nevada rule holds the following contingencies:

  • Employees for whom it is impractical to vote before or after work are entitled to 1 – 3 paid hours, depending on the distance between work and polling station.
  • The employee must request leave in advance.
  • The employer can set the time for leave to vote.
