How Florida’s Minimum Wage Bump Affects Your Business

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.

Each subsequent September 30, Florida will raise its minimum wage $1 per hour until hitting $15 per hour in 2026. After that, the minimum wage will continue to rise as it adjusts to inflation.

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.
