I work in a small hotel on the bar/waitressing. It is owned by a larger national company and for about six months there have been accusations, from management, of theft of stock. They have called various meetings and decided they will be grouping our tips, taking for what is being stolen and then dividing them up. I'm not sure:
a) whether this is legal?
b) if people actually are stealing or they are doing it to make a fast buck or cover other costs. We have been given no proof of the theft at all, and are questioning why the poice have not been called even for advice.
If anyone has any advice at all I would be most grateful.
contract says nothing about tips i can find, they used to be ours to keep.
I don't know how it would be possible, they say they have been stock taking etc but no-one has ever seen management check a delivery on arrival so things could be going missing there. Its very dodgy all round
