All non-exempt bartenders are entitled to the federally mandated minimum and overtime wages. Tipped Bartenders must be informed in advance if the employer elects to use a tip credit as part of the minimum wage calculation and they must be able to show that the bartenders receives at least the minimum wage. Additionally, if the employer includes a tip pool, those that participate in that pool must be employees who customarily and regularly receive tips.
Additionally, some states may have their own overtime pay laws that may be slightly different from the FLSA with respect to overtime pay for bartenders. An experienced overtime pay attorney can determine whether you are entitled to overtime wages based upon your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.
