- Minimum Wage For Waiters, Waitresses Bussers
Should waiters, waitresses, bussers, and other tipped employees be making minimum wage? Should waiters, waitresses, bussers, and other tipped employees be paid overtime?
Minimum wage and overtime for waiters, waitresses, bussers, and other tipped employees are commonly unpaid and this is a violation of federal law. The total amount thatwaiters, waitresses, bussers, and other tipped employees make including the tips should add up to minimum wage and time and half if you worked over 40 hours in a week. So the amount you are paid per hour plus the tips you made for the week should add up to the amount you would make if you were paid straight minimum wage for the hours you worked up to 40 hours and time and a half if you worked over 40 hours.
You can be required to pool or share your tips, but only with other employees that normally get tips and not with the employer. Common types of jobs that share tips are bussers, servers, waitresses, and waiters.
If you are required to pool your tips, your share of the pool plus your hourly should ad up to the amount you would make if you were paid straight minimum wage for the hours you worked up to 40 hours and time and a half if you worked over 40 hours.
If you are a waiter, waitress, busser or other tipped employees and your total pay per week doesn’t equal minimum wage or time and a half if you work overtime, you should contact Phillips Law Group by calling 1-800-706-3000 . No fees to start your case. No fees unless we win your case.

Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.

As an attorney here at PLG, I’m lucky to be surrounded by seasoned attorneys and knowledgeable staff that share my enthusiasm for helping accident victims. The team here at PLG treats clients with respect and empathy while fighting hard to get the results they deserve.
