Minimum Wage for Tipped Workers (FARE Grant)

New York State law allows employers in all industries (other than building services) to satisfy the minimum wage by combining a wage paid by the employer with tips the employee receives from customers. Only hospitality industry employers are allowed to take tip credits from minimum wage. For tipped workers, employers must pay overtime hours worked at time-and-one-half the minimum wage rate, less the applicable tip credit.
