Governor Brian Sandoval signed S.B. 409 into law on June 9th, 2015, eliminating the 7-year reporting restriction for criminal convictions. Effective immediately, there is no time limitation on reporting criminal convictions for individuals living and working in the state of Nevada.
S.B. 409 expands the type of information that consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) can report on prospective employees of gaming operators and employers. At the requset of the gaming operator or employer, background check reports for Nevada residents and employees can include bankruptcy information older than 10 years and other negative credit information older than 7 years for positions directly connected to the employer's operations.
