- As discussed in our prior alert, the Final Rule, originally issued under former President Trump’s administration, would have given employers more latitude in structuring their pay practices if they did not take a tip credit and otherwise paid the federal minimum wage.
- The Final Rule would have taken effect on March 1, 2021.
- The Final Rule is now under review by the Biden administration.
- President Biden has publicly announced his desire to eliminate the tip credit, which puts the future of this Final Rule in question.
