From before they’re hired to after they leave, workers in the United States are protected by state and federal laws. Here’s what workers need to know in Florida.
Florida’s minimum wage is $8.05 an hour for most employees, as of January 2015; it is $5.03 for tipped employees, in addition to tip, though employers must make up the difference if workers bring in less than the minimum wage after tips. Non-salaried workers fall under federal law that requires time-and-a-half pay for more than 40 hours worked each week.
