Replacing waiters’ tips with a ‘brand charge’ must be questioned

It’s true, too, that some operators have historically held back tips with good intentions — for instance, to ensure staff get similar rates of pay throughout the year, rather than, say, a spike at Christmas and next to nothing during January and February. But it’s clear, too, that the law has been brought in to protect workers whose tips are unfairly taken from them, and no-one should be able to get out of paying what they owe simply by rebranding a tip as, in this instance, a “brand charge.” It is morally suspect.
