Post a Job

Did you know Nevada JobConnect is the largest job bank in Nevada and has the largest database of individuals seeking employment? Businesses have several options when posting job openings with Nevada JobConnect. JobConnect can provide screening/referral control of all candidates, or businesses can receive referrals directly from job seekers by registering with EmployNV.gov. In all cases, your listing is placed into Nevada's online job bank.

Post job listings online through EmployNV Jobs, or use the contact information above to post listings by phone or fax.

Connect with Job Seekers

When a business signs up for access to EmployNV.gov, they initially have limited access to search resumes. The approval process usually takes from 1 to 3 business days. Once approved, employers have full access to search posted resumes, including contact information.

Report a work Refusal

Did someone refuse your offer of employment? Or has an employee refused to return to work?

These situations are reportable and should be brought to our attention. Nevada law prohibits individuals from receiving unemployment benefits if they refuse to accept offers of suitable employment, or quit, without good cause.

Suitable work is defined by state law (NRS 612.390) as employment that the claimant has the expected skills and abilities to perform and pays an amount that is normal for that occupation within that industry in the current labor market. Refusing an offer of suitable work is basis for denying unemployment benefits; claimants will not be denied benefits if they are acting in good faith.

For a work refusal report to be investigated, the business must present a person with a bona fide offer, and the claimant must decline it, preferably in writing. Simply posting a job opening online or hanging a “NOW HIRING” sign is not an offer of employment.

Businesses should provide the following information regarding employment refusals or employees who refuse an offer to return to work by emailing our Business Service Office JOBBANKMPKWY@detr.nv.gov with the subject line “Work Refusal.”

 

Business Information Person Refusing the Offer of Employment
Name of person submitting the report Full Name
Business Name Last 4 of the Social Security Number
Address Address/Phone Number
Employer Account Number or FEIN Date of Employment Offer
Phone number Method of Offer (in-person, phone, email, etc.)
Contact Person if Different from Reporter Refusal Method (in-person, phone, email, etc.)
  Reason Given for the Refusal
Anticipated Return to Work Date (if applicable)
