The Florida minimum wage will increase 21¢ in calendar year 2019. Starting January 1, 2019, the minimum wage Florida employers must pay their employees will increase from $8.25 an hour to $8.46 an hour.
For tipped employees (like food servers), employers can count the tips these employees receive towards the required minimum hourly wage. However, employers are required by law to pay tipped employees a direct cash wage. For 2019, this cash wage for tipped employees is also increasing, from $5.23 an hour to $5.44 an hour.
With this change to the Florida minimum wage, all Florida employers will be required to display a new minimum wage poster for 2019. One of the benefits of your FUBA membership is that we provide you with all updated posters free of charge. As long as you maintain your FUBA membership, you will receive all required employment postings free of charge from us. It will be enclosed with the mailed copy of your newsletter.
On January 1st, simply post this notice at your workplace to be in compliance with this requirement.
If you have any questions about the minimum wage and how it affects your business, please call the FUBA offices at 800-262-4483 and ask for Karen, Lance or Mallory.
FUBA members can also order additional hard copies of the new minimum wage poster from us. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, your company name, and mailing address in your email. Additional copies are also free of charge for FUBA members.
