Share

Update Applicable to:

All Florida employers and multi-state businesses with employees who perform work in Florida.

What happened?

As previously communicated, effective September 30, 2023, the Florida minimum wage increased to $12 per hour. The minimum base wage for tipped employees increased to $8.98 per hour.

What are the details?

In accordance with Amendment 2 that passed on November 3, 2020, Florida’s minimum wage will increase over a period of 5 years to $15.00 per hour. See below calendar for future reference:

Effective DateFlorida Minimum Wage

September 30, 2024$13.00
September 30, 2025$14.00
September 30, 2026$15.00

Section 448.109, Florida Statutes, requires employers who must pay their employees the Florida minimum wage to post a minimum wage notice in a conspicuous and accessible place in each establishment where these employees work.

For Tipped employees the increase will continue to be by $1.00 every year, and the increases will be as follows:

Effective DateFlorida Minimum Tipped Wage

The respective tips will not be considered part of the wage; employers still have to pay tipped employees a direct wage.
