Miami Overtime, Wages and Tipped Employee Lawyer
Tipped Employees Under the FLSA
Tipped Miami employees are those who regularly receive more than $30 in tips on a monthly basis, according to the FLSA.
Employees are entitled to an employer-paid wage of at least $2.13 per hour, more if tips received do not total $5.12 an hour . This is based on the current Miami minimum wage of $7.25.
The FLSA allows tip pooling (or sharing) arrangements among service employees who typically receive tips.
Illegal labor practices are not uncommon in the Miami restaurant industry, which experiences a high employee turnover. If you work in a Miami restaurant and were underpaid or cheated out of your tips, call the Miami Overtime Pay Lawyer James Loren.
