How Can Employers Take Advantage of Tipped Employees?

As a tip employee, you are entitled to receive a specific amount of pay depending on the hours that you work. If you are not being paid what you are entitled to, an experienced tip pool violation attorney in Houston from our firm can help. We have the experience you need on your side to file a successful claim against a guilty employer.

Waitstaff and other tip employees may be taken advantage of employers committing illegal acts, such as:

  • Taking illegal cuts out of the tips
  • Deducting tips from base pay
  • Deducting tips for walk-outs
  • Inaccurately altering time cards
  • Refusing or failing to pay overtime
  • Paying less than required wages
  • Splitting tips with management or kitchen staff

What Compensation Can I Recover?

If we file a successful claim against your guilty employer, you may be able to recover the wages which you did not receive. In some situations, you may be able to recover additional compensation, such as interest or penalties. Your employer may also be instructed to pay all of your legal fees.
