Bronson Lipsky has prosecuted numerous cases to recover tips that were unlawfully retained by employers. This most often happens with restaurants, social halls, and country clubs.
This is particularly egregious because most often employers are paying their tipped employees below the minimum wage at the “tipped minimum wage” and they do not even let the employees keep all of their tips. When this happens, the employer loses the benefit of paying the employees at the “tipped minimum wage” and owes the employees for the difference between the rate at which they were getting paid and the statutory minimum wage.
Bronson Lipsky has extensive experience fighting for workers to recover for them all of their tips and all other owed wages.
