Compliance Tip of the Week!

Verifying Cash Tips

Service-oriented occupations will sometime depend heavily on tips.  Even if an employer does not list tips on an Employment Verification, tips must be verified for certain occupations.  Use the Certification of Cash Tips Income to have your applicant or resident estimate their annual tips based on the previous twelve months’ total tips.

Occupations from industries that commonly receive tips include:

  • Food and Beverage
  • Transportation/Valet Service
  • Hotel
  • Spa Service
  • Entertainment
  • Casino
  • Hairdressing/Barbering
