Pay: Tips can be "remuneration"
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Nerva and others v RL & G Ltd  IRLR 200 HC (0 other reports)
Tips which are included in payments made by credit card or cheque become the property of the restaurant, and can be counted as part of a waiter's "remuneration" for Wages Council purposes, rules the High Court in Nerva and others v RL & G Ltd. Although Wages Councils were abolished in 1993, this decision has continuing relevance for employees who are contractually entitled to the last rate of pay set by a Wages Council.
