Document Number: 2021-23446
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-10-29
Agency: Wage and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration, Department of Labor, Office of the Secretary
In this final rule, the Department of Labor (Department) finalizes its proposal to withdraw one portion of the Tip Regulations Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) (2020 Tip final rule) and finalize its proposed revisions related to the determination of when a tipped employee is employed in dual jobs under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA or the Act). Specifically, the Department is amending its regulations to clarify that an employer may only take a tip credit when its tipped employees perform work that is part of the employee's tipped occupation. Work that is part of the tipped occupation includes work that produces tips as well as work that directly supports tip- producing work, provided the directly supporting work is not performed for a substantial amount of time.
