An employer can pay you $2.63 per hour if you regularly receive more than $20 a month in tips. If your tips plus the $2.63 per hour do not add up to $8.00 per hour, your employer must make up the difference.
Your tips are yours to keep and cannot be taken by your employer, managers or other workers who have any managerial responsibilities. Your employer may, however, implement a “tip pool” where some of your tips are shared with other non-managerial workers.
