The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Generally, employers are required to compensate employees for every hour worked by at least minimum wage and pay a premium for overtime. However, there is an exception to the minimum wage for tipped employees (e.g. waiters, waitresses, bartenders, valets, chauffeurs, taxi drivers, bellhops, and any other employee receives at least $30 month in tips). There are additional protections given to tipped employees and therefore there are two categories 1) laws for tipped employees; and 2) laws for everyone else.
