Special Rules Regarding Tippable Sales and Tips for a Pay Period
When you do not receive the sales amount and the tip immediately (for example, when payment is made by credit card or debit card), the tippable sale and the tip are taken into account for the pay period in which you receive the sales amount and the tip.
However, where you pay the tip to the employee out of the cash register before receiving the money corresponding to the transaction (the sale and the related tip), the tippable sale and the tip are taken into account for the pay period in which the sale is made.
When more than one waiter provides service at the same table, the tippable sale is deemed to have been made by the employee who is primarily responsible for providing the service at that table. However, we will accept any method of allocating the sale that we consider reasonable under the circumstances.
