New legislation, to be introduced at the earliest opportunity, will set out that tips must go to the workers providing the service. The new provisions will ensure that workers get the tips they deserve and consumers get the reassurance that the money they leave in good faith goes to the staff, as they intended.

 

The changes were recently announced by the Business Secretary Greg Clark, who also outlined a series of other measures to back businesses and entrepreneurs, support workers and ensure every part of the country benefits from the government’s modern Industrial Strategy.

 

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said: “While most employers act in good faith, in some sectors evidence points towards poor tipping practices, including excessive deductions being made from tips left by customers.”

 

Among the other changes announced was an increased focus on flexible working. Clark explained that the government will consider creating a duty for employers to consider whether a job can be done flexibly and make that clear when advertising the role.
