Time to post Florida’s new minimum-wage poster

No doubt, you already raised hourly pay for your minimum-wage employees. The new Florida rate took affect on June 1, 2011, and raised the minimum wage to $7.31 per hour. That’s just a few cents more than the federal rate of $7.25.

But have you put up the new poster in a conspicuous place? Or is it sitting on your desk? If so, tack it up today!

If you don’t have a copy, you can download one from the Florida Agency for Workplace Innovation at www.floridajobs.org/workforce/posters.html. Be sure to print and post both the English and the Spanish versions.

Final note: Consider using a locked bulletin board for postings. That way, they’ll stay put—and you’ll stay in compliance with the law.
