Tipping, Tip Pooling, and Department of Labor


#1

Thoughts? (I’m rather disgusted by the fact that employers can keep the tips, if they so choose.)


#2

No effect in California.


#3

Employers can’t keep tips in CA. That won’t change. But, I believe if this passes, tip pooling will be shared with the BOH staff, whereas right now it’s only allowed to be pooled amongst the FOH staff.


#4

California law takes precedence there as well. And there’s nothing to pass, it’s a pending rollback of Obama-era regulations.


#5

It’s going to make people wary of tipping if they think it’s going to the owners.
