[url=“”>Hospitality Update: Applebee’s Automated Timekeeping Leads To Lawsuit.</A>
Gerald Fast has worked at two Applebee’s restaurants since 1998. He has held many different jobs: cook, server, host, expediter, and bartender. Sometimes he rotated these duties during short time periods, but from May, 2005, he has worked almost exclusively as a bartender. While serving customers, Fast had the opportunity to earn tips, so Applebee’s used a “tip credit” when calculating his pay to ensure he made at least the minimum wage for each hour he worked.

<a >Better Put that in Writing! New York Updates Its Law on Commission Agreements and Other Wage-Related Statutes.</A>
Governor Spitzer recently approved legislation designed to assist the efforts of the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) to enforce various provisions of the state Labor Law. The first change, which goes into effect October 16, 2007, requires employers to memorialize in writing the terms of employment for commissioned salespersons. Other changes expand coverage of certain provisions of the Labor Law, raise the administrative penalties for failing to provide meal periods and one day of rest, and decrease the number of employees whose wages may be deposited directly into their accounts without written consent. These latter changes become effective on January 14, 2008.
