Guven that Tipping is a oft discussed topic here, i was wondering what everyone makes of the new ltipping regulation passed in NY.
- Employers can set whatever kind of tip policy they wish (pooled tips, or individual)
- Employers cannot skim from the tips
- The new laws delineate which staff are eligible for tips (food service only, waters, bartenders, bussers, sommeliers, and hosts, as long as they are not also managers).
- The work order also says that restaurants and caterers can't put automatic gratuities on bills that sound like they're tips but then actually pocket the money themselves.
