A few tips on your tips

In California, any tips you receive from a customer or patron are yours to keep. Unlike in other states, employers cannot deduct your tips as a credit against the minimum wage. Tips are fully your property, although you may be required to share the tips with other front-of-the-house employees who served the same customer.

What does California's Unruh Civil Rights Act do?

The Unruh Civil Rights Act, passed in 1959, is one of California's great civil rights laws. It protects people from business discrimination based on a number of characteristics, including race, color, national origin, ancestry, language, immigration status, citizenship, religion, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, medical condition, or genetic information.

Assembly Bill 51, which goes into effect on Jan. 1, prohibits employers from requiring, as a condition of employment, that their employees agree to arbitrate all disputes.

The law does not invalidate existing arbitration agreements.
