Meetings

Please join us for our next meeting

June meeting details to be posted soon.


The May 2022 meeting took place on May 12 at the Miami Beach Convention center.
HRCI and SHRM credits will be available for attending.

Bob Turk, Attorney with Stearns Weaver spoke. “Is a Gratuity a Tip or Service Charge?”, a discussion on the payroll traps when distributing tips and services charges. Is a porterage charge distributed to bell staff, a tip or service charge? How does a tip left on top of a service charge fit into the picture?  Also tip credit and tip pooling, overtime calculations (and possible exemption) for food and beverage employees. And, a 30-minute limitation of side work and how it affects the 80/20 Rule for tipped employees. (Don’t know the 80/20 Rule – you need to!)
