Employers in Vermont must conform with these state rules regarding the treatment of tips received by employees.
The minimum wage Vermont employers must pay tipped employees for 2014 is $4.23 per hour ($4.17 per hour for 2013). The maximum tip credit for 2014 is $4.50 per hour.
If the combination of tips and the $4.23 per hour do not average at least the minimum wage ($8.73 per hour for 2014), the employer must make up the difference.
Each January 1, the basic tip wage rate will increase the same as the minimum hourly wage.
A service or tipped employee means all those, in either hotels, motels, tourist places, and restaurants who customarily and regularly receive more than $120 per month in tips for direct and personal customer service.
