Lack of overtime pay is the most abused form of a workers compensation and often is the most penalized.
The current national non exempt minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Bartenders and waitresses experience a slightly different set of rules concerning minimum wage.
People who work on gratuities can be given $2.83 per hour as long as their tip money combined with their $2.83 per hour totals at least $7.25 an hour.
However, bartenders and waitresses don’t realize that their employer is responsible to ensure that they make at least the minimum wage per hour.
