Appeals court sides with Starbucks over tips

Posted: Updated:

By LARRY NEUMEISTER

NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court in New York has agreed that Starbucks baristas must share their tips with shift supervisors.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued its finding Thursday.

The decision stemmed from a lower-court ruling that found that the baristas who serve customers must share tips with shift supervisors. The courts say shift supervisors do much of the same work as the coffee servers.

A Starbucks spokeswoman says the company is pleased with the ruling. She says shift supervisors spend more than 90 percent of their time serving customers.

An attoney for the baristas says the ruling lets subsidize the pay of its supervisors with money that should be going to their lowest-wage workers.
