In February 2019, the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division updated its Field Operations Handbook (FOH), which provides guidance for how the DOL interprets and applies its regulations. Specifically, the DOL revised its guidance regarding 29 C.F.R. § 531.56(e), which addresses when employers may take a tip credit for jobs that involve both tip-generating and non-tip-generating duties. The DOL previously interpreted 29 C.F.R. § 531.56(e) to mean that employers could not take a tip credit for non-tipped duties when they comprised more than 20 percent of an employee’s duties. Courts often reached conflicting opinions on how to apply this provision, and the scope of employers’ obligations. The February 2019 revisions to the FOH sought to clarify the DOL’s interpretation of 29 C.F.R. § 531.56(e), and echoed a December 2018 opinion letter, which formally rescinded the prior interpretation of the tip-credit regulation.Read More
