Increase to Florida's Minimum Wage

The Florida minimum wage will increase from $8.05 to $8.10 effective January 1, 2017. As a reminder, this minimum wage applies to all non-exempt employees, including student and non-student OPS employees. No action is required of departmental staff to increase this wage for impacted employees; this will be handled centrally by FGCU Human Resources.


FLSA Changes 2016 

FLSA Image flagflsa key terms


On November 22nd, a U.S. District Judge issued a temporary injunction suspending the Department of Labor’s new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime regulation. Pending further action, the December 1st implementation date has been postponed. As a result of this court action, it is uncertain how the FLSA’s overtime pay exemptions will be addressed under the new rules, or if the new rules would still be in effect.

The University Administration will continue to evaluate this matter and provide updates as they become available. If you have any questions, please contact our Human Resources Department at (239) 590-1400. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
