Reminder: Minimum Wage Increase


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, 2021, the new Florida minimum hourly rate is $10.00. Earlier this year, the Office of Human Resources notified campus partners that in November 2020, Florida voters approved increases to the state’s minimum wage, which will gradually move from the current $8.65 an hour to $15 an hour by September 2026. To comply, employers must implement the following hourly minimum wage schedule:

September 30, 2022


September 30, 2023


September 30, 2024


September 30, 2025


September 30, 2026



Employee actions with an effective date of September 30, 2021, or after should be appointed at the new hourly rate.  All OPS employees making less than $10.00 per hour will be systematically increased in OMNI HR.
