OPS Minimum Wage Increase

Message to department representatives

This message has been approved by Shelley Lopez, Program Director, Communications/Special Projects, for distribution to all Department Representatives.

This is a reminder that effective September 30, 2023, the new Florida minimum hourly rate is $12.00. In November 2020, Florida voters approved incremental increases to the state’s minimum wage, which will be $15 an hour by September 2026. To comply, employers must implement the following hourly minimum wage schedule:  

Effective Date

Florida Minimum Wage

(non-tipped employees)

September 30, 2021


September 30, 2022


September 30, 2023


September 30, 2024


September 30, 2025


September 30, 2026



As a result, the current State Labor Law Poster will need to be updated. We ask that you remove the old poster (or the section of the All-in-One poster) and replace it with the new Notice to Employers, Minimum Wage In Florida” poster. All other Labor Law Posters are not affected and should remain posted in conspicuous locations that are accessible to all employees. Please use the link provided above to print a copy of the updated version and post it in the same area as your other Federal and State Labor Law Posters.

Employee actions with an effective date of September 30, 2023, or after should be appointed at the new hourly rate. All OPS employees making less than $12.00 per hour will be systematically increased in OMNI HR.
