Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Where my wife works they charge her 4% when customers pay with a credit card. Every place I've looked on line says they can charge up to 3% for service fee. I just want to know what the legal amount is.
So if I am understanding the information provided to me correctly the legal amount a restuarant owner can charge their servers (for tip amount only) is 3% and not the 4% that appears to be being deducted from her credit card tips on her pay stub in the state of PA?
What legal action, if any, can we take? Should we contact a lawyer in our state?
You can report them to the Department of Labor at http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/fairpay/complaint.htmYou can certainly hire an attorney if you would like to file an action against the employer. To go through the proper chain you should start by filing a complaint.I hope that the information that I have provided has been helpful to you. If you are not satisfied with my service please let me know and I will request a refund for you. Thank you.
