IRA on WGN: Tip Pooling Rule Can Lead to More Equitable Workplace

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

This week, IRA President & CEO Sam Toia shared his insights with WGN on the Department of Labor's (DOL) announcement on its intention to rescind a 2011 federal rule prohibiting back of house employees from participating in a valid tip pool agreement. 

Sam explained how the IRA supports this proposal, which can help close the gap in pay between the front of the house and the back of the house employees in restaurants that do not take a tip credit. 

The National Restaurant Association (NRA) is reviewing the proposed rule change and will submit comments to the DOL in the coming weeks.
