Tipped Employee Lawyer Serving San Antonio

Our unpaid wage attorneys represent tipped employees who have not been paid the correct wages.  The law regarding tipped employees is complex and employers often fail to pay the correct wages. All tipped employees should know their rights.  Contact our employment lawyers if you are a tipped employee and not being pay correctly.

What is the Correct Minimum Wage for Tipped Employees?Although $7.25 is the minimum wage for tipped employees, an employer may take a tip credit of $5.12 an hour.  Thus, an employer may pay tipped employees as low as $2.13 an hour ($7.25 - $5.12 = $2.13) for every hour worked up to forty hours a week.  This is often referred to as the "tip credit."
The use of the tip credit is a privilege, not a right of the employer.  In fact, an employer must meet all guidelines regarding the tip credit, or the employer owes the employee the full minimum wage all the way back to the date the violation occurred.  In fact, employers must often pay employees back wages for up to three years if the violation is willful.

Tipped Employees Must Receive Overtime PayEmployers must pay tipped employees overtime as required by law. This overtime calculation is often different than it is for other hourly employees, and it is not as simple as paying time and a half. Normally, a tipped employee must be paid at least $5.76 per hour of overtime.
Employers frequently make mistakes when calculating the overtime amount. Our employment lawyers can determine whether you are paid the correct overtime rate. Contact us today.

I would recommend the Law Office of Rob WIley, P.C. to anybody needing assistance with employment rights. They did an incredible job of handling my case professionally and in a very resonable time frame. In my initial consultation with Rob Wiley I was given a very straight forward analysis of my claims after which Fadi Yousef was the attorney assigned to my case. Working with Fadi was the best. He showed care and a true concern for the direction and result of my lawsuit. Fadi was always available and was in constant communication with me throughout. I thank Fadi Yousef, Rob Wiley and his team for doing a phenomenal job, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. R.G.

Rasha, Eric and Rob did it again a Second time around! I'll admit, they are truly the BEST employment lawyers out here in the Metroplex! Not only they won a case against my previous employer, they also won my unemployment insurance (UI) case as well! It is such a relief and a huge burden off my shoulders about not worrying how I'm going to pay my bills now and provide food for my family. I can't say enough how awesome they are and how far they go to make sure you are taken well care of. Thank you so much Rasha, Eric and Rob for all that you did for me! J.T.
