What's Happening?

Cheesecake Factory workers, and service industry workers in general, are being exploited. Throughout several locations across the country, we are facing brutal working conditions, hostile work environments, health and safety violations, wage theft, and so much more. Corporate and upper management continues to turn a blind eye to us, so we must resort to outside means in order to make our demands heard and bring our voices to the table.

UPDATE: ROC United Celebrates Victory as DOL Issues Final Rule on Tipping for 'Dual Job' Workers

On October 28, 2021, the U.S Department of Labor announced publication of a final rule (Tips Dual Jobs final rule) that sets reasonable limits on the amount time an employer can take a tip credit when a tipped worker isn’t doing tip producing work.

Under the final rule, this means that an employer can take a tip credit only when the worker is performing tip producing work or when:  

  • A tipped employee performs work that directly supports tip producing work for less than 20 percent of the hours worked during the employee’s workweek.
  • A tipped employee performs directly supporting work for not more than 30 minutes. 

This is a major victory for restaurant workers. Thank you to everyone who helped out.
