July 1, 2011
Staci Ketay Rotman co-authored the article, "Non-tipped Duties Cannot Exceed 20 Percent of Work," published in the July 2011 issue of Hospitality Law. The article discusses an appeals court decision to deny summary judgment to Applebee's after a group of current and former servers and bartenders brought a suit against the restaurant due to its violation of the FLSA's tip credit rules. Jim and Staci provide a summary of the case and further explain how hospitality employers can prevent similar issues with tipped employees.
