Are you a person who works for tips who has been asked to do work that doesn’t bring in tips (side work, kitchen work, cleaning work)?
Is your employer ensuring that tips are bringing your hourly earnings up to at least the full minimum wage for every hour worked and paying the difference if not?
Did your employer notify you when hired that tips need to make up the difference between the lower “tipped” subminimum wage and the standard minimum wage for every hour worked?
Did your restaurant institute service charges, administrative fees, or any other tipless model in which you have lost income that might belong to you?
Have you experienced sexual harassment on the job, or been discriminated against because of your race or gender?
