TIME CLOCK PROCEDURES

You may clock in within 5 minutes of the start of your shift. All hourly employees are given an employee ID number to clock in and out on the restaurant’s timekeeping system. 

If you need a correction to your clock in or out time, you must ask a manager to adjust your time and physically watch them change it in the system within 24 hours. 


TIP OUT & REPORTING

As an employee of a restaurant, all the tips you receive, whether in cash or included in a credit card transaction, is taxable income to you. You are required, by federal law, to report and record your actual tips for each shift.  We strongly encourage you to accurately report your tip income. This will reduce the chances of you being audited by the IRS and allows you to qualify for greater social security, unemployment and worker’s compensation benefits. While you are responsible for reporting all of your tip income, the restaurant may be required to allocate additional tip income to any tipped employee that does not declare at least 8% of their gross sales as tip income.

At the end of each shift, tipped employees must disclose on the server check-out form, the amount of credit card tips and total tips less any tips shared with any other employees. 8% of all alcohol sales are tipped out to the bar. 1% of food sales are tipped out to food runners only if scheduled. Guidelines for tipping out employees may change Your tips will be recorded and reflected in total on your paycheck stub. All credit card tips will be reflected on your paycheck.
