Minimum wage; tipped employees.


Chief Patron:
Jeion Ward (D)

2020 Regular Session


As introduced. Minimum wage; tipped employees.

Requires employers to pay a tipped employee at a rate not less than the minimum wage set forth in the Virginia Minimum Wage Act for time that the tipped employee regularly performs services in the course of his employment for which there is no reasonable expectation that the employee will receive tips. The measure eliminates the ability of an employer to apply the tip credit for untipped portions of the work performed by an employee who regularly receives more than $30 a month in tips. Under current federal law, the minimum cash wage for tipped employees is $2.13 and the maximum tip credit that an employer can currently claim is $5.12 per hour based on a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
