UK Government creates new bill to ensure all tips go to staff
In a move backed by UKHospitality, the government has introduced a new law that will mean all tips should now be going to hospitality workers and not the businesses they work for. This new law hopes to make tip sharing easier, however, many workers would suggest that rather than changing tipping laws, the UK should work to provide more significant aid to the hospitality industry and its workers. You can read the government's official legislature on the new tipping bill here.
