Wages may be paid in cash or check on demand, without discount, at an established business in the state (FL Stat. Sec. 532.01). An employer may pay wages in coupons, punch-outs, tickets, or other devices in lieu of cash that are redeemable for goods or merchandise (FL Stat. Sec. 532.02). If an employer uses these alternative methods of payment, it will be liable to pay the full face value of the ticket or coupon, in currency, any time after the 30th day from issuance.
Direct deposit. An employer may pay wages via direct electronic deposit of wages into an employee's account if the employee has authorized it in writing and has chosen a bank (FL Stat. Sec. 532.04). An employee may not be fired for refusing to authorize direct deposit.
Payday law. Florida has no payday law. Employers are free to set up pay schemes that best suit their business needs.
