Florida’s minimum wage is currently $11 per hour. This is just a friendly reminder that on September 30, 2023, Florida’s minimum wage increases to $12 per hour. The new overtime wage rate will increase in tandem to $18 per hour.
For Florida restaurants and hotels taking a tip credit against minimum wage for tipped employees, the tip credit rate will increase to $8.98 per hour (with a $3.02 per hour maximum tip credit). The tip credit overtime rate will also increase to $14.98 per hour.
