Focused on girls employees within the restaurant business the report covers, “the prevalence of sexual harassment among tipped workers, its connection to tipped workers’ subminimum wage, and the consequences faced by survivors, including retaliation by employers for reporting.”
Conditions for tipped employees had been even worse throughout the pandemic the report discovered.
