Tips and Gratuities
Tips and gratuities are the property of the employee who earned them and no employer can require an employee to share a tip or gratuity with that employer. In addition, an employer can not pass on any administrative charges to an employee.
An employer, however, can adopt a policy of pooling tips and gratuities for the benefit of employees and must advise an employee in writing at the time of hiring that this policy is in effect.
