DOL/WHD RIN: 1235-AA21 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Tip Regulations Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) 

In the FY 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act, Congress amended multiple provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act with respect to an employer's use of its employees tips and additionally provided that portions of the Department's 2011 rule regarding tips shall have no further force or effect until any future action taken by the Department.  In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, the Department will align its regulations with the recent statutory changes.  Additionally, the Department is proposing to revise the existing "dual jobs" regulation to provide greater clarity, consistent with current guidance, regarding an employer's ability to take a tip credit to satisfy minimum wage obligations for time spent by a tipped employee performing duties that are related to the employee's tipped occupation.
