  • Tip Credit, Tiered Tip Wage, Wage Board & More

    On January 30th the Wage Board voted on recommendations, that if accepted by the New York State Commissioner of Labor, will have wide spread implications for the restaurant industry. Those recommendations include an unprecedented decrease in the current tip credit of $3.75 for food service workers, down to $1.50 an hour.

    Nonetheless, out of this Wage Board's unfavorable recommendation for the restaurant industry, the NYC Hospitality Alliance secured a substantive change, that would save small business owners millions of dollars each year in increased labor costs: a tiered tip credit. This comes at a time of intense political pressure to eliminate the tip credit completely. Click here to read full alert ›
