Once, I was traveling out of New Orleans on business and stopped at an airport restaurant before boarding my flight. The server provided excellent customer service so I decided to leave a large credit card tip. The server informed me that unfortunately they would not see any of the tip because their employer withheld credit card tips. The server's employers' actions could be in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") under a recently decided Fifth Circuit case, Stelle, et al v. Leasing Enterprises, Ltd.
