  • Limits on tip sharing

    I am a server in North Carolina. The restaurant where I work requires us to tip out a rather large percentage based upon our sales, regardless of how much we actually make. The state law says that tip sharing is allowed as long as no employees tips are reduced by more than 15%. The amount we are having to share is nearly twice that amount. This has been brought to the attention of the management, but nothing has been addressed or even acknowledged. Is there anything we can do to have this enforced? Also, are there other states that have similar limits?
