No, tipping in the United States is not mandatory. In other words, not tipping is not illegal. But keep this in mind: most servers in the United States are paid $2.13 per hour — more than $5 per hour less than other workers.

Is it illegal to ask for tips?

California, Montana, Nevada, Minnesota, Oregon, Alaska, and Washington have outlawed tip credits. This means that servers are paid the state minimum wage in addition to their tips. Some restaurants, especially in these states, have adopted a “no tip” policy altogether.

Is it illegal to not give tips to employees?

Under California law, employees have the right to keep any tips that they earn. Employers may not withhold or take a portion of tips, offset tips against regular wages, or force workers to share tips with owners, managers or supervisors. Tips are also separate from wages.

Can an employer force you to tip out other employees?

Under federal law, employers can require employees to participate in a tip pool or otherwise share their tips with other employees. However, federal law prohibits employers from keeping any portion of the tips or from including supervisors or managers in the tip pool.

Is it illegal to tip yourself?
