To those paying close to minimum wage to some employees, this is a courtesy reminder that the Florida Minimum Wage has been increased from $8.05 to $8.10 per hour, effective January 1, 2017. If you use Tip Credit, the new minimum required to be paid by the employer, irrespective of tips, has also been increased from $5.03 per hour to $5.08 per hour. It is important that you review your payroll to make sure the correct amounts are used and review your payroll processes with your in-house individual responsible for payroll processing, or your outside payroll provider, to avoid unnecessary violations due to this change.

As always, Lubell & Rosen’s Employment Law Group is here to help you with planning and compliance so that you follow Department of Labor regulations and mitigate risks for future liabilities involving payments to your employees.
