    • $12.60 per hour with qualifying health benefits amounting to at least $1.63 per hour, or
    • $14.23 per hour without health benefits

These rates have been added to the poster with a note stating that the qualifying health benefits amount is subject to change if modified by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners. The poster also has updated contact information for the Broward County Professional Standards / Human Rights Section and the Broward County Purchasing Section.
