Wait Staff Files Suit Against Rainforest Cafe's Tip Policy

Wait staff members at a Rainforest Cafe in Massachusetts are suing their employer over a tip policy court papers say cheats them out of earning minimum wage. The restaurant mandates wait staff share their tips with non-wait staff. Because they have to share tips, a lawsuit filed in Middlesex, Ma., Superior Court says the wait staff should make minimum wage, which is $8 per hour in the state. But the wait staff is paid $2.63 per hour, using a pay scale designed for employees who also earn regular tips. Attorneys for the plaintiffs are attempting to have the case filed as a class-action lawsuit.
