Helpful Tips for Tipped Employees

While it is true that tipped employees make less than minimum wage, it is assumed by the law that you will still make at least minimum wage once your tips are taken into account. It is the restaurant’s responsibility to make sure that you receive at least minimum wage over the course of your shift. If they are failing to do so, or they are giving portions of the tip pool to non-tipped employees, you need the help of our restaurant lawyers.

As a restaurant law attorney we fight for the little guy, not for businesses taking advantage of the powerless. You are not powerless when you have us by your side. How your tips are handled and payed out is highly regulated by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If your employer has done any of the following, we are here to fight for you:

  • Employer Adjusts Clock-in & Clock-out Times
  • Employer Charges You for Customers Who ‘Dine-&-Dash,’ Breakage of Tableware, & Cash Register Shortages
  • Employer Deducts Your Tips below the Cash Wage in a Tip Pool
  • Employer Doesn’t Calculate Your Overtime Pay on the Full Minimum Wage
  • Employer Doesn’t Pay Full Minimum Wage for Excess Side Work
  • Employer Doesn’t Pay the Difference between the “Cash Wage” & Minimum Wage When You Have a Slow Shift
  • Employer Fails to Give You Notice of Tip Credit or Tip Pool Deductions
  • Employer Fails to Pay You Full Minimum Wage When a Service Charge Is Imposed
  • Employer Never Gives You a Paycheck
  • Non-Tipped Employees Takes a Share of the Tip Pool
