2019 Florida Minimum Wage Increase

Don’t Forget – Workplace Posters Must Be Updated!

On October 24, 2018, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity announced that the 2019 Florida minimum wage will be increased from $8.25 to $8.46 per hour, effective January 1, 2019. The agency is mandated to calculate a minimum wage rate each year based on the percentage increase in the federal Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers in the South Region for the 12-month period prior to September 1, 2018.  For full time minimum-wage employees, this will calculate to an annual wage increase of $436.80.

For restaurant and other hospitality employers who may take up to a $3.02 per hour tip credit against the minimum wage, the new 2019 wage requirement for tip-receiving employees will be $5.44 per hour.

On January 1, 2019, all Florida employers are required to display the state-mandated minimum wage poster in a conspicuous manner for employees.  Update your Florida Minimum Wage Poster for 2019 here and replace your 2018 posters.   (Also available here in Spanish)
