  • adding on to tips Georgia

    Hi I work in a small town as a waitress and my question is this I know that I make tipped min wage actually I make 3.00 an hour +tips and at the end of the day I claim my tips there are some days that I do not make more than $15.oo I work the lunch shift and it has been slow lately, at the end of the week my boss goes to do payroll and adds up our hours and our claimed tips then if we didn't make/claim enough in tips to make the required 5.85 an hour she changes our claimed tips and that is what she turns into payroll, is this legal?

    You need to gross at least min wage.

    I'm guessing your employer may be misapplying an IRS tip reporting agreement, which is a seperate issue from FLSA and the min wage.

          You must be paid minimum wage OR the sub-minimum plus tips (whichever is more). If that is not happening, call the federal DOL (I am not sure that Georgia has a functional equivalent).

            Agree, contact the federal DOL - Georgia's "DOL" would just refer you to them anyway.
