how do you tip at the restaurant you work for?

My husband and I had brunch at the restaurant I work at. I am new there so I didn't expect to get 50% off on our tab. Is this a common practice?
Also, before I had overheard conversations on undertipping customers so I didn't want be seen as a cheapo and ended up tipping what I would be, had I been given the regular tab. Now, my husband says that was unnecessary. Help me out here.
This was our favorite place to eat before I started working for them and now it feels awkard. Unless I'm told what I did was OK and I'm simply overanalyzing the situation it's going to be weird eating there again. I appreciate the comments. Thanks
