A quick reminder to all business owners, HR professionals, payroll professionals and management staff, as we are fast approaching the end of year 2018 and very important implementations are coming for the new year. The new Florida Minimum Wage will increase and will be effective as of January 1, 2019, as announced by The Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) back on October 15, 2018. This means that employees who are not subject to tipped wages will need to receive a minimum wage of $8.46, which is a twenty-one ($0.21) cent increase over the current rate which was effective back on January 1, 2018.
