When employers with tipped employees get audited, 84% of the time there are violations. As all restaurant owners well know, restaurant industry payroll is highly complex making it more prone to errors. Not only do you have to figure out wages for your tipped employees, but you also have the added hurdle of figuring out shortfalls and calculating your FICA tip credit. That’s a lot of computing—and a lot to potentially mess up. And then you have to decide (or your state decides for you) whether you have a tip pooling arrangement.
Attendees will leave this session understanding:
- The definition of a tipped employee
- Employees that cannot be tipped
- How state and local minimum wages affect tipped employees
- Tip credit ins and outs
- How to calculate overtime on a tip credit
- Tip pool basics
- Pros and cons of tip pools
