Post the News: Florida’s Minimum Wage Set to Increase

It’s time to update your workplace posters. On January 1, 2019, the following minimum wage increases will take effect in Florida:

  • Florida’s regular minimum wage increases to $8.46/hour (formerly $8.25/hour).
  • Florida’s tipped employee minimum wage increases to $5.44/hour (formerly $5.23),
  • The Federal Contractor Minimum Wage increases to $10.60/hour (formerly $10.35/hour).
  • A minimum wage for tipped employees of federal contractors increases to $7.40/hour (formerly $7.25/hour).

State and federal laws require that all employers with at least one employee display mandatory federal, state and OSHA postings such as the minimum wage. Noncompliance can result in citations or even fines that can go as high as $17,000, so it’s important to keep up with these changes.
