Cow slaughter has always been a controversial topic in India. Many states have passed laws banning cow slaughter and such laws have been challenged before the Supreme Court of India. Article 48 of the Constitution of India, which forms part of the Directive Principles of State Policy states that the State shall take steps for prohibiting the slaughter of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle. The Supreme Court of India as early as in 1959 in Mohammed Hanif Quareshi’s case upheld the laws banning cow slaughter. However, in the said judgment it was held that laws mandating a total ban on the slaughter of she buffaloes or breeding bulls or working bullocks (cattles or buffaloes) after they cease to be capable of yielding milk or of breeding or working as draught animals is not reasonable.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) permits employers to use “tip credits” to satisfy minimum wage obligations to tipped employees. Some employers use those “tip credits” to satisfy the minimum wage obligations; some do not. (And in some states, like California, they cannot do so without running afoul of state minimum wage laws.)Many hospitality employers use “tip pools” to divide customer tips among staff. Those “tip pools” normally provide for tips to be divided among “front of the house” employees who are involved in serving customers – servers, bartenders, etc. Some employers have extended the “tip pools” to include “back of the house” employees – dishwashers, cooks, etc. – particularly where they are not using a “tip credit.” In 2011, the Department of Labor (“DOL”) issued a rule prohibiting employers from including … [Read more...] about Ninth Circuit Approves DOL Rule Prohibiting “Tip Pooling” For Kitchen Employees Even Where No “Tip Credit” Is Taken
Two employees of an Alabama Waffle House were caught on video battering each other behind the counter earlier this week. The women went at it like they were in an MMA competition, striking, grappling, and taking the fight to the floor. All the while, they made a mess of the place, knocking kitchen equipment around — occasionally using items as weapons.One of the women finally got the upper hand, pinning her opponent to the ground for more than a minute, eventually releasing her when police arrived.A customer recorded the melee with his phone, and told AL.com that it started after one of the employees asked the other to get out of her way so she could wash dishes.Officers decided not to arrest either woman, but Captain Lorenza Dorsey said they “have the option to have the case reviewed and/or pursued in municipal court if either desires to do so.”[Image via screengrab] … [Read more...] about Women Trash Kitchen in Crazy Waffle House Brawl (WATCH)
