    I started a new job bartending. First day training the manager told my trainer to throw me a few bucks and they would split the rest 3 ways (her and her son cooked). Thought it was a training thing. Second night manager was supposed to train me, she disappeared and sat in office. Trainer from previous night jumped in to help. When I cashed CC tips in I put some in pocket and left in envelope for him. Manager said I won't make you split all tips with me tonight, im not that dishonest? She didn't tip kitchen staff but her son wasn't working. Third, she cooked again,and maybe served 3 drinks. I had full bucket of tips. She cashed out my CCs told me my share was 20 and change, 14 for her and 11 for her son... I went through the CC receipts it added up to the 45 she split. So She also took ALL the cash I had in tip jar. Staff and even CUSTOMERS know its an issue and say hurry up put this tip in your pocket or she will steal it. Apparently its been brought up and we were told we share tips like adults? Its an American Legion, so non profit so maybe its legal then for her to take the tips for her and her son???? I have bartended 15 years, been a bar manager, and a GM of a bar/restaurant and we were never required to tip back of the house (but could as courtesy and always gave them one if customer specified) and as manager when I jumped to help in during busy times I never took tips from staff or EVER thought about touching their tip.jar.

    I'm sure you have that ability. Is that really what you wanted to ask?

    I don't understand what the question means in the context of the post.

    Do you have a legal issue that you would like us to address?

    Yes. Does the manager have the right to take my tips, when she is not on bartending and split then with her and her son while they cook (getting more tips than I do, while also both making way more an hour) or can I tell her no. She can not take my tips, and no I will not split them with her/her son/back of house.

    With your experience, talent, and skills; it might be time to find an employer that treats her/his employees fairly.

    Here's hoping you get that next, great gig very soon.
