Florida Supreme Court Upholds Legislation Requiring Public Employees to Contribute to Retirement Accounts

Ogletree Deakins • January 24, 2013
In a 4-3 decision in Scott v. Williams, No. SC12-520 (Fla. Jan. 17, 2013), the Florida Supreme Court recently upheld the constitutionality of a 2011 law, Senate Bill 2100, requiring Florida’s public employees to contribute three percent of their pay to the Florida Retirement System (FRS). In addition to the employee contribution being held constitutional and remaining in effect, this decision also affirmed the elimination of the cost of living adjustment (COLA) for service after July 1, 2011. This decision impacts Florida’s more than 600,000 state and local employees, including police officers, firefighters, teachers, and other public employees, as well as state and local governments that faced the possibility of having to reimburse millions of dollars of monies already contributed by employees.
