Abuse Of Tipping - Government investigation launched

The Business Secretary has launched an investigation into abuse of tipping (predominantly in bars and restaurants) as part of the Government’s commitment to making sure everyone is paid fairly.

The Government has launched a call for evidence to look at how restaurants treat tips left by customers and whether Government intervention is necessary to strengthen the voluntary code of practice overseen by industry body, the British Hospitality Association. Recent investigations have revealed that it remains the practice of some major restaurant chains to withhold a proportion of tips left for staff to cover administrative costs.

I’ve personally worked with Ortolan Legal’s managing director on a number of transactions. Their legal advice doesn’t come wrapped in multiple caveats; it takes account of the commercial realities businesses face. Technically, they are really capable and they’re also highly personable people to work with. They represent real value for money.
