The Caterer Tipping and Payment Summit

New government legislation setting out how employers must handle tips and service charge is due to become law this spring. During this webinar our experts will set out exactly what is required from operators and what new rights employees will have, as well as discussing the future of tipping.

In this summit, you will learn

  • Details of the new legislation and how you as a business can ensure compliance
  • What is a tronc scheme and would it be suitable for your business?
  • How can you make it easier for employees to receive their tips?
  • What is the future of service charge?


Staying on the right side of the law

What will change under the new legislation, what employers must do to comply and what the repercussions could be if operators are found to be in breach.


Peter Davies, managing director , WMT Troncmaster Services


Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions about the implications of the new legislation and the systems they need to have in place when it becomes law.

Communicating change and the future of service charge

Tips and service charge have long been a challenging area for hospitality. Our panel of operators will share their insights into setting up systems that are fair and open as well as communicating effectively with their teams.

We’ll also discuss the role service charges and tips play in hospitality, and whether the desire for change following their exclusion from furlough payments during the pandemic has waned.
