Comprehensive Help For Tipped Workers With Tip Pool Or Minimum Wage Issues

Tipped work can raise special minimum wage issues. Under Arizona law, different minimum wage rules apply for tipped workers than for nontipped workers. This can create added challenges for tipped workers when it comes to determining if their employer is complying with minimum wage law when it comes to their pay. Our lawyers are very knowledgeable of the minimum wage rules for tipped workers. We can help you uncover whether your rights as a tipped worker have been violated.

Some work environments include tip pools, which means workers are supposed to share tips. This type of tipping setup is legal, but there are rules in place, including one that prohibits managers from keeping any of these pooled tips. At our law firm, we help workers pursue legal claims related to tip pool misconduct.

The legal complexity of tipped worker claims can seem daunting, but we will help you every step of the way. At every stage of your legal matter, you can expect us to do whatever it takes to get you the right information and to best preserve your rights.

Other matters we help tipped workers and restaurant workers with include restaurant wage claims, unpaid overtime claims and excess hour claims.
