Florida voters shocked the nation last November when they overwhelmingly voted to gradually increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour over the better part of the next decade. On September 30, the first step toward $15 will take place when the statewide minimum wage lifts to $10 per hour.
Employers will still be allowed to apply a tip credit of $3.02 toward the minimum wage for tipped employees. This means tipped employees will also see a bump in hourly pay to $6.98 with an additional $1 per hour until reaching $11.98 in 2026.
Going forward, HotSchedules will automatically preset hourly minimum wage increases into our customers’ systems. Just one more reason why HotSchedules is the national leader in industry compliance.
