  • Pay reduced to minimum wage on final check - Florida

    Can an employer reduce regular pay (promised pay) to minimum wage on a final paycheck? Does employee have to be notified and acknowledge the reduction in pay? I've been looking everywhere and I can't seem to find an answer to my questions....Please Help..

    That is not inherently illegal, and since FL has next to no wage and hour laws it's questionable whether there is a notice requirement. There is definitely no requirement that you acknowledge it. A position has been taken that this *may* violate contract law (though it does not violate employment law) but only a FL attorney could comment on that and we have no FL attorneys who post here. You might see if you can consult with one if you want to pursue the issue.
    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.
