Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Minimum Hourly Rate.  Amend the introductory paragraph of RSA 279:21 to read as follows:

Tipped employees of a restaurant, hotel, motel, inn or cabin, or ballroom who customarily and regularly receive more than $30 a month in tips directly from the customers will receive a base rate from the employer of not less than 45 percent of the applicable minimum wage.  If an employee shows to the satisfaction of the commissioner that the actual amount of wages received at the end of each pay period did not equal the minimum wage for all hours worked, the employer shall pay the employee the difference to guarantee the applicable minimum wage.  The limitations imposed hereby shall be subject to the following exceptions:

2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
