Tell the Manager: No Tips for You!April 24, 2015 – In The News
James Lemonedes was featured in the Corporate Counsel article, “Tell the Manager: No Tips for You!” Full text can be found in the April 24, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is noted below.
The Supreme Court of New York recently ruled that managers cannot take part in tip pools.
A blog post written by James Lemonedes elaborates on this. In the post he says that, on appeal, the court came to the conclusion that managerial positions are not necessarily food workers themselves, and therefore cannot participate in tip pools.
