business law in colorado, usa?
i work in restaurant and tip or money service is my main salary
my problem is :
a lot of customers come to eat at my restaurant but they left with NO TIPS, NOTHING on the tables.
they come a lot and left us without TIPS all the time.
how can i live if i go home with $40 OR $50 PER DAY/ 13 HOURS WORKING ( 8h30 AM TO 9h30 PM) ?
somebody told me that i CAN CHARGE 15% FOR TIP INTO THEIR BILL when they pay, because that is the law in colorado.
is that right for Colorado?
if i can charge them, what are the conditions do i have to have?
if that is the law in colorado, what is the book that law from? what chapter? issued what year?
thanks for your time
but i just get $20 per day
just $1.50 per/ hour

No, you can't legally include a gratuity on the bill, in any state. Otherwise, it's not a gratuity, it's a service charge.
Now, if you are making $4.26 and hour, and your tips don't take you to minimum wage of $7.28 an hour, then your employer has to make up the difference.
