While federal wage and hour laws permit employers to take a tip credit against the required minimum wage and, in certain circumstances, permit mandatory tip pooling, state laws are not consistent on the permissibility of these practices. FordHarrison attorneys have prepared a survey of state minimum wage laws, including the permissibility of tip credits and/or tip pooling. For information on how to request a copy of the survey, please visit the In Depth Analysis page of FordHarrison's Knowledge Center.
If you have questions regarding state minimum wage or tip credit laws, please feel free to contact Salvador Simao, firstname.lastname@example.org, head of FordHarrison’s Wage and Hour practice group. You may also contact the FordHarrison attorney with whom you usually work.
