  • Credit Card Gratuity - Fee Subtracted Illinois

    My boyfriend just started a new job delivering pizza. One customer paid by credit car, the tip as well. Apparently the business takes a fee out of the tip, because it is done by credit card, and he gets the leftover. I have been trying to find out if this is actually legal in his state. It looks like it's illegal in CA, but I can't tell about IL.

    Does anyone know about this or know where I can find out?

    Illinois - Q: Can I (employer) deduct the credit card processing fee from my tip payouts?

    A: If the employer pays the credit card company a processing service fee, the employer may deduct this amount from the tip payout. For example, if the credit card company charges 2% on charged sales as a service fee, the employer need only pay the server 98% of the charged tip.

          One caveat, though, the deduction cannot result in the employee receiving less than minimum wage for the workweek unless the employer makes up the difference.

          But thanks for reminding me, though. The next time I order pizza delivered, I'll pay the tip in cash. Ooh, pizza sounds good right about now.

            I know, not pertinant, but, Thank you Patty. It is kind people like you , who understand tipping and how it affects the worker, that warm the hearts of us ex-delivery people.

            Merry Christmas to you!

              You're welcome and to you too. I actually DID order pizza delivered after your post. Last one before the diet starts again after Christmas.
