NV Rev Stat § 612.390 (2011) What's This?

1. Except as otherwise provided in NRS 612.392, a person must be disqualified for benefits if the Administrator finds that the person has failed, without good cause, either to apply for available, suitable work when so directed by the employment office or the Administrator or to accept suitable work when offered. The disqualification continues for the week in which the failure occurred and until the person earns wages from employment covered by this chapter equal to or exceeding his or her weekly benefit amount in each of the number of weeks thereafter determined by the Administrator according to the circumstances in each case. The Administrator shall not require more than 15 weeks.

2. In determining whether or not any work is suitable for a person, the Administrator shall consider the degree of risk involved to the person s health, safety and morals, his or her physical fitness and prior training, his or her experience and prior earnings, his or her length of unemployment and prospects for securing local work in his or her customary occupation.

3. Work must not be deemed suitable and benefits must not be denied under this chapter to any otherwise eligible person for refusing to accept new work under any of the following conditions:

(a) If the position offered is vacant due directly to a strike, lockout or other labor dispute.

(b) If the wages, hours or other conditions of the work offered are substantially less favorable to the person than those prevailing for similar work in the locality.

(c) If as a condition of being employed the person would be required to join a company union or to resign from or refrain from joining any bona fide labor organization.
