Tips and the national minimum wage

With effect from 1 October 2009 tips, service charges, gratuities and cover charges paid to a worker through the employer’s payroll do not count towards payment of the national minimum wage.

Just to confirm, tips, etc., when given directly to a worker by a customer, and tronc payments made directly to a worker by a tronc master, continue to be excluded from the national minimum wage.

Guidance on what counts as pay for national minimum wage purposes can be found at www.lexisurl.com/blnmw
