applicant for whom a private employment agency has secured employment,

deductions may be taken from the paychecks of the applicant by the employer and

paid to the private employment agency for the amount of the fee charged by the

private employment agency for securing the employment. The total amount of such

payroll deductions is subject to the limitation on the amount of a fee charged

by a private employment agency for securing employment set forth in subsection

2.

     (a) “Babysitting” has the meaning ascribed to it in

NRS 611.020.
