hi there im a waitress and i have a dilemna so i just recently found out that the boss is taking our credit card tip money and using it towards "fees" or "housing" and i believe filing taxes or something? while us waiters and waitresses get only cash tip. he did not notify us about what he was doing with our credit card tip money, some of us had to find out ourselves. my coworker told me what hes doing is technically not illegal too, because we have to or we're suppose to pay taxes for our tip? so it kind of makes up for it? is this true? or is this illegal?
