I'm trying to figure this out and I think this might be one of the better places to ask.
Consider this scenario:
Employee X is working as a server in a restaurant. Under Ohio law that server must make at least minimum wage ($7.40) when their hourly wage ($3.70) is combined with their tips.
Employee X makes $100 in tips a five hour shift.
Employee X makes only $1 in tips in a five hour shift
When the hourly wage and tips for both shifts
are combined Employee X made $13.80 per hour - but on Night 2
the employee made just $3.90 per hour.
Here is my question: Is the employer required to adjust the hourly wage of the employee on Night 2, when they made only $3.90 per hour?
I have read the poster in the restaurant I work at several times (which you can read here
) and find the wording semi-vague. It doesn't clarify whether the employer must verify their employee is making minimum wage per-shift
or per-pay period
, and I can't find any more detail with Google. So, H/A, I throw the question onto you.
