Council Considering a Law Change for Tipped Employees

The Montgomery County Council will hold a public hearing at 1:30 p.m. on June 9, on Expedited Bill 24-15 that would modify the amount of the tip credit an employer can use to calculate the minimum wage for a tipped employee working in the County.Restaurant picture

The bill also would require an employer of a tipped employee to submit quarterly wage reports; require the County Executive to establish an online reporting system for quarterly wage reports; and generally amend the law governing the minimum wage for a tipped employee working in the County.

The meeting will be televised live by County Cable Montgomery (CCM—Cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon) and can be viewed via streaming through the County website at
