STATE LAWS ON TIPS AND PAYCHECK DEDUCTIONS

State Laws on Tips and Paycheck Deductions

What an employer may require an employee to pay for depend by the state you live in.

Some states allow employers to charge employees for tools; others don’t. Some states allow employers to charge employees for uniforms while other states allow this only if the uniform can be worn as street wear.

States also have different rules about whether and how an employer may withhold money from an employee’s paycheck to pay back a debt owed the employer.

State laws can also vary on tips. Generally, tips belong to the employee who receives them. Except for a reasonable amount the employee is required to contribute to a valid “tip pool,” employees keep their own tips. And the employer may not share in the tip pool.

In some states, including California’s, employers can’t take a tip credit, meaning paying a lower minimum wage to tipped employees. These states require employers to pay tipped employees at least the minimum hourly wage, in addition to their tips.
