How will the industry be affected by the new allocation of tips?

Howard Field, founder member of HOSPA, speaks to Catering Today about the potential pitfalls there may be once the new Employment Allocation of Tips Act becomes legislation next year

Do you think the new Employment Allocation of Tips Act will genuinely work in redistributing the fair share of tips?

I don’t believe this legislation touches the surface of the subject. I think it addresses principally what you said at the beginning of our discussion, which is where tips and service charges are distributed to staff, that they’re distributed fairly, but I don’t think it addresses fairness, in respect of all the people involved in transactions.
