Tip Employees

New York Wage and Hour Tip Violation Claims

Tipped Employees & Illegally Withheld Tips

Employees who rely on tips for income are especially susceptible to unscrupulous employers. Some employers pool tips and take a percentage of the tips for themselves. This may be a wage and hour law violation.

Tipped employees include waiters and waitresses, hotel staff, busboys, luggage handlers, etc. – all of whom rely on tips as a substantial part of their income. If you are a tipped employee and believe you may not be receiving all the pay and benefits to which you are entitled, you should consult an experienced New York Employment Attorney.

Leeds Brown Law, P.C., has represented thousands of employees in mediation and litigation on a number of employment law issues and violations of the wage and hour laws. Our efforts have resulted in millions of dollars in monetary and non monetary compensation for these employees.

How Are Tipped Employees Taken Advantage of by Employers?

Tip employees, such as waitstaff and others, are especially vulnerable to employers’ illegal acts, including:

  • Allowing management employees to participate in tip pools, i.e., taking a cut of the tips
  • Charging waiters and waitresses for walk-outs who do not pay their bill
  • Deducting tips from the employees’ base pay
  • Paying less than minimum wage to certain classifications of employees
  • Failing or refusing to pay overtime when required
  • Altering time cards to inaccurately reflect hours worked
