Gov. DeSantis strips worker wage, heat protection powers from cities

April 12, 2024



'Regulations promulgated in Washington or Tallahassee are less likely to be appropriate than in almost any other area of regulation.'


Florida cities and counties will be barred from requiring businesses to give water breaks or other “cooling measures” to employees who work outside after Gov. Ron DeSantis signed HB 433.


The measure also removes the power of local governments to require contractors to pay higher wages, or use higher pay as an incentive in awarding bids. The new law, which takes effect July 1, also bars cities and counties from requiring employers to give workers their work hours ahead of time.
