  • salaried manager getting equal tips out of tip pool

    Good day all.

    I'm a food/bev server at an establishment where my manager and assistant manager take an equal percentage out of our tip pool, they both receive salary pay. Is this legal?

    Probably not legal.

    Tip Pooling: The requirement that an employee must retain all tips does not preclude a valid tip pooling or sharing arrangement among employees who customarily and regularly receive tips, such as waiters, waitresses, bellhops, counter personnel (who serve customers), busboys/girls and service bartenders. Tipped employees may not be required to share their tips with employees who have not customarily and regularly participated in tip pooling arrangements,
