Florida’s Minimum Wage Is on the Rise

Florida may be the flattest of the 50 states, but its minimum wage is going up! The state just issued its new minimum wage poster, which will soon be on the way to our clients.

What Employers Need to Know

According to Florida law, on September 30 of each year, the state’s minimum wage rate is recalculated based on the percentage increase in the federal Consumer Price Index over the previous 12 months.

Effective January 1, 2018, employers must pay non-tipped employees a minimum wage of $8.25 per hour. Tipped employees must be paid a minimum wage of $5.23 per hour, in addition to their tips.

As in previous years, employers should be aware that they may not retaliate against employees for exercising their rights to receive the minimum wage.
