The government has announced plans for new legislation to prevent employers from keeping tips intended to go to workers. The new legislation, to be introduced at the earliest opportunity, will set out that tips must go in full to the workers providing
the service. The government says that while most employers act in good faith, in some business sectors the evidence points towards poor tipping practices, including excessive deductions being made from tips left by customers. The new legislation will therefore
both ensure that workers get the tips they deserve and give customers reassurance that the money they leave to reward good service is going to the staff, as they intended.
