Employment Standards Administration October 8, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Tip Regulations Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
Document Number: 2019-20868
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-10-08
Agency: Wage and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration, Department of Labor
In the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 (CAA), Congress amended section 3(m) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to prohibit employers from keeping tips received by their employees, regardless of whether the employers take a tip credit under section 3(m). In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), the Department proposes to amend its tip regulations to address this Congressional action. The Department also proposes to codify policy regarding the tip credit's application to employees who performed tipped and non-tipped duties. This NPRM also withdraws the Department's December 5, 2017 NPRM proposing changes to the Department's tip regulations, as the CAA has superseded it.
