  • Hourly Wage Cuts in Florida Florida

    Is there any laws that would prohibit me from taking away a raise that was given due to the fact that the verbal agreement is no longer being held up by the employee to whom the raise was given and how much notice is required by the state? Also, would I have to give more than a weeks notice if we are going to a bi-weekly pay schedule instead of a weekly? I am finding it difficult to navigate through the Florida labor laws to find an answer to my questions.
    Thanks for any help you may be able to give me!

    There is nothing in Florida law that prohibits you from rescinding a raise. No specific amount of notice is required but you should give the employee such notice before he works any hours at the lower rate.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
