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.
