Tip Sharing

This results in a growing disparity of income and sometimes animosity between kitchen workers and servers (bartenders, bussers, runners) who often earn significantly more money than their colleagues in the kitchen because they earn tips. NYS should amend the law to allow non-managerial kitchen workers (if the employer chooses to) to participate in a restaurant’s tip pool, which is allowed in other states around the country.
