A bill to let tipped employees keep their tips is awaiting a decision by Gov. Pritzker. St. Rep. Lance Yednock says the bill would prohibit employers from forcing employees to pool their tips. The Ottawa Democrat says employers couldn’t deduct tip amounts from the regular wages an employee makes either. Employees could still decide on their own to pool their tips, but the boss wouldn’t be allowed to influence the decision. All of this area’s lawmakers voted for the bill.
