Restaurant surcharges are illegal in California

Post by Caddy478 »

Starting July 1,2024, under SB478, California restaurants will no longer be able to charge service fees — which have become an increasingly common tool to sustain higher wages for workers as food businesses move away from tips — and must instead fold them into menu prices, the attorney general’s office said.

Well, guess what! The state assembly came up another bill which allows restaurants to keep collecting these fees as long as the fees is clearly printed and outline in the menu.
