Can you believe we’re less than a month away from 2013? We can’t!

One of the things that will change for Florida employers is the minimum wage, which is set to increase again in 2013, rising from $7.67 to $7.79 per hour. The minimum wage for tipped employees is rising as well, from $4.65 to $4.77 per hour.

The increase is effective beginning January 1, 2013. Employers should make sure payroll is adjusted appropriately. Employers should also update their minimum wage posters, which must be posted in a conspicuous and accessible place. You can download the English version of the new poster here, and the Spanish version here.

In other news, we’ve been hard at work behind-the-scenes planning the 2013 HR Law & Solutions seminar. We hope to make it even bigger and better than 2012 — and that’s a tall order considering the 2012 seminar ended with a 20th Anniversary champagne & Norman Love celebration!

Check back later this week for more information.  As always, if you have any suggestions or requests for things you’d like to see at our 2013 seminar, feel free to comment here, or you can call or email us — we’d love to hear them.
