Rainforest Cafe servers sue over wage-tip policy

We filed suit against the Rainforest Cafe in Burlington, Massachusetts, concerning its policy of requiring servers to share tips with hosts, which we claimed violated the Massachusetts Tips Law. The Massachusetts Tips Law prohibits employers from causing, requiring, or permitting wait staff employees — for example, servers and bartenders — to share or "pool" their tips with employees who do not serve prepared food or beverages directly to patrons, or clear patrons' tables, or who possess any managerial responsibility.
