Next time you go to an Atlanta sushi or other nice restaurant, notice the side conversations among the staff. Much of the time, it concentrates on tips, taxes, and other paperwork that most restaurant workers know little or nothing about.
If you work for tips, one of the more disliked conventions in the hospitality business is the practice of tip pooling, where the wait staff makes the tips and then is mandated to share them with the host staff, bus staff, etc. This is different from the wait staff voluntarily giving a percentage of tips to their co-workers, and has tax and other implications. This practice has its own set of rules for both employers and employees, and is easily abused by employers looking to save a few bucks here and there.
