Hartford is attacking restaurants...again! This time, they want to eliminate the tip credit.
Recently, legislation was introduced that will significantly change the way your restaurant operates. SB 39, an "Act concerning the Minimum Fair Wage and Employees Who Customarily and Regularly Receive Gratuities" will eliminate the state's tip credit - a major benefit for employees who receive a portion of their wages through tips.
Connecticut is already a difficult place to operate a restaurant. Eliminating the tip credit will not only hurt restaurants, but also the employees that work.
