Florida Minimum Wage to Increase on January 1, 2014

December 26 - Posted at 6:01 PM Tagged: , , ,

Florida’s minimum wage is currently $7.79 per hour. Beginning January 1, 2014, Florida’s minimum wage will increase to $7.93 per hour, which is a 1.7% (or $0.14) increase from last year.


Employers of “tipped employees” who meet eligibility requirements for the tip credit under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) may count tips actually received as wages under the FLSA. The employer, however, must pay “tipped employees” a direct wage. Effective January 1, 2014, the new minimum wage for tipped employees should become $4.91 per hour plus tips.



Florida law requires a new minimum wage calculation each year on September 30, based on the Consumer Price Index. If that calculation is higher than the federal rate (which is currently $7.25 per hour), the state’s rate would take effect the following January.
