Under the FLSA, restaurant servers are entitled to earn compensation for every hour worked. The FLSA requires that waiters and waitresses are paid at-least $7.25 per hour. This can be straight pay or a combination of a lower wage and tips. Deductions made from wages for items such as cash shortages, required uniforms, or customer service walk-outs are illegal if the deduction reduces the employee’s wages below the minimum wage or cuts into overtime pay.
