SB 892 — State Minimum Wage
by Senator Martin
This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.
Prepared by: Commerce and Tourism Committee (CM)
The bill amends s. 448.110, F.S., the Florida Minimum Wage Act, to incorporate the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) “as amended.” This will incorporate exemptions from the FLSA’s minimum wage requirements that became law after the Florida Legislature adopted the Florida Minimum Wage Act and were therefore not incorporated as part of the Florida act.
The effect of the bill will be to exempt border patrol agents and salaried baseball players from the Florida Minimum Wage Act.
If approved by the Governor, or allowed to become law without the Governor’s signature, these provisions take effect upon becoming law.
Vote: Senate 38-0; House 86-30
