Protesting Denial of Tips

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets a federal minimum wage of $5.15 per hour for covered, nonexempt employees. An employer of a tipped employee is only required to pay $2.13 an hour in direct wages if that amount plus the tips received equals at least the federal minimum wage, the employee retains all tips and the employee customarily and regularly receives more than $30 a month in tips. If an employee's tips combined with the employer's direct wages of at least $2.13 an hour do not equal the federal minimum hourly wage, the employer must make up the difference. Employers are forbidden from taking tips from you, if you believe that you have been denied your due tip amount by the employer, put forward your protest through this form, 'Protesting Denial of Tips'.
