We suffered a big scare recently when the Las Vegas Sun reported that to help small business the Clark County business license department along with the Las Vegas Metro Police Department removed the requirment for many types of businesses to require their employees to get work cards — including locksmiths. See the article in the Sun here County Removes Work Card Requirement for Several Jobs.
We confirmed with the City of Las Vegas business license department that locksmiths DO indeed still require work cards and that it was a misprint. We learned that all Las Vegas jurisdictions are required by Nevada state law to make locksmiths priveleged licenses and to have employees get work cards.
As all of you know, we here at Pop-A-Lock Las Vegas pride ourselves on the quality of our people and the fact that each of us has a work card and that the company is properly licensed in all Las Vegas Valley jurisdictions — unlike most of the other locksmiths in town unfortunately.
You can see our licenses on the front page of our website under Las Vegas Locksmith Licenses section. You can also find our North Las Vegas Locksmith License and our Henderson Locksmith license here too.
We are laser focused on this licensing issue because of all of the abuse in our industry here in Las Vegas. We always charge the price we quote and are up-front about potential additional costs.
If you have any feedback about making sure Las Vegas keeps its locksmith work card requirement, please post it here!
