    FLORIDA – November 8, 2016 – Florida's Department of Economic Opportunity has announced a new minimum wage effective on January 1, 2017. On that date the minimum wage will be raised from $8.05 an hour by five cents to $8.10 an hour. For employees subject to the tip credit, the tipped minimum wage will also rise by five cents to $5.08 an hour, plus tips. 

    Employers must pay Florida based employees the higher of the federal minimum wage or the Florida minimum wage. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Therefore, unless the federal minimum wage is raised to over $8.10, the Florida minimum wage will apply to Florida employees. 

    Florida employers are required to post a minimum wage notice in a conspicuous and accessible place in every establishment where nonexempt employees work. Florida's minimum wage poster is available in English and Spanish from the department's website by clicking here
