Who can apply for an order for protection against harassment in the workplace? (Who is an employer?)
Any employer who reasonably believes that harassment in the workplace has taken place may file an application for a temporary order for protection against harassment in the workplace.1 An employer includes both private and public employers. A public employer could be the State of Nevada, agencies of the state, and political subdivisions of the state.2
