Wages and hour spotlight: tipped employees

If you have employees who earn tips, pay attention! The Department of Labor has recently added over 600 investigators to its ranks who consider this a red-flag issue. Among other things, you will have a working definition of:

  • Who is a tipped employee?
  • When does an employee who handles many duties (only some of which are tipped activities) cease to be a tipped employee?

Tip credit and tip pooling cases are continuing to come into the courts so if you don’t know the answers to these questions, it’s time to find out. You can learn more about this topic by reading “Are Your Tipped Employees Doing Tipped Work?” by our partners at Ogletree Deakins LLP. Click here to read the article.
