Do employees in the Tip pool have a right to see physical copies of who is contributing and what amounts and who is not contributing . Do they get to see recap by day by week by month or by year. What kind of Verification are they entitled to?
Yes. But some are not following.
The Employer knows some employees are not contributing and they are the only ones with the Record. Are employees in Tip Pool allowed to see contributions by employees and should there be records made available for verification to all employees in tip pool.
This involves 100's of people.
There is no written policy on who gets to see who is contributing and who is not.
So the employees that make their living from the Tip Pool have No Recourse on the Employees Not Contributing or the Employer for Not Enforcing Employees to Contribute to tip pool.
