    Date:
    1 November 1996

    Tips included by customers paying restaurant bills by cheque or credit card, unlike cash tips, become the property of the restaurant and can be counted as part of a waiter's "remuneration" for the purposes of legislation dealing with minimum wages, holds the Court of Appeal in Nerva and others v R L & G Ltd (t/a Paradiso E Inferno and Trota Blu Wine Bar).
