Join the FRLA Northeast FL Chapter for an essential dive into the 80/20 rule and learn how to ensure compliance for documenting your staff’s hours. Protect your business from audits and potential lawsuits by former employees. We’re hearing from members that they are being served with lawsuits from former staff alleging non-compliance with the ruling. Don’t let this happen to you!

FRLA member and Board member Gary Wheeler from Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete will provide valuable insights on the rule and how it applies to your restaurant and hotel staff. We understand this ruling can be confusing and pose compliance challenges. Gary will share guidance on protecting your business, from onboarding employees to documenting work during shifts.

What is the 80/20 labor rule?

  • Introduced in December 2021, this rule applies if you take the tip credit.
  • If tipped workers are paid the tipped wage during their shift, any supportive work cannot exceed 20% of their workweek OR 30 continuous minutes.
  • If tipped workers engage in unrelated activities, they must be paid full minimum wage for that time.
  • If a tipped employee performs directly supporting work for over 30 continuous minutes, the employer cannot take a tip credit for any time exceeding 30 minutes.
  • Time exceeding 30 minutes, for which the tip credit cannot be taken, is excluded from calculating the 20% level.
