Florida Wage Payment Timing Requirements

Filed under Office & HR.

Employers in Florida must comply with these state rules regarding the timing and frequency of wage payments.

Florida does not specify a required frequency of payment, but any check, draft, note or other acknowledgment of indebtedness issued in payment of wages or salary due must be negotiable and payable in cash, on demand, without discount, at some established place of business in the state at the time of its issuance.

In addition, for at least 30 days after the issuance of the check, draft or note, the maker or drawer must have sufficient funds, credit or an arrangement with the drawee for its payment.
