New spending bill stops employers from using workers’ tips

The $1.3 trillion spending bill includes language that would forbid restaurants and other employers from keeping, or using employees’ tips to compensate non-tipped workers.

The provision addresses worker advocates’ concerns that employers could steal tips under a Labor Department proposal that could have allowed businesses to pool tips made by wait staff and other workers and share them with “back-of-the-house” employees like cooks and dishwashers.

This legislative support should come as welcome news to any server who has ever worked under such an arrangement, which is especially prevalent in businesses where patrons sign their checks, and servers are left at the mercy of management for their gratuities.
