BURBANK, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 11, 2022 / — Representatives of the Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. announced today that their law firm protects the rights of tipped employees who have been denied tips fully or partially by their employers in SoCal.

“We are proud to be able to protect the rights of tipped worker in Southern California” said Michael Akopyan, founder and partner at the Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C.”

“Generally an employer in California cannot deduct tips from wages,” said Akopyan and revealed, “According to Labor Code Section 351, an employer must pay the full amount of the tip that the customer left for the employee.”

Similarly, an employer generally cannot deduct credit card processing fees or charges from tips received by employees. Additionally, because tips are left by customers and are not paid by employers, they do not count towards hourly wages and employers can’t consider tips a part of the regular pay.

“As a general rule an employer cannot take any part of the employee’s tips and cannot deduct these tips from wages,” highlighted Akopyan and said, “Employees working in SoCal who feel that they may have been denied tips by their employers can contact Akopyan Law’s employment law attorneys in Burbank for a complimentary case evaluation and find out more about whether their rights have been violated.”
