Nevada Tip Pooling Case Appealed To U.S. Supreme Court

Volume 15, Issue 22
October 5, 2016

In March we discussed a decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that prohibits Nevada employers from using "mixed tip pools" - i.e., tip pools that require traditionally tipped employees to share tips with traditionally non-tipped employees. In August, one of the employers in that consolidated case - Wynn Las Vegas, LLC - asked the U.S. Supreme Court to consider the matter. We will keep you posted on whether the Supreme Court will hear this important case.
