Starbucks creates "shift manager" position in Mass. to deal with court's no-tips-for-supervisors ruling.

Massachusetts law prohibits employees with managerial responsibility from sharing tips. A court recently ruled that Starbucks shift supervisors can't dip into the tip jar because they have certainly supervisory duties. In response to that, Starbucks is creating a new no-tips position called “shift manager,” which offers what a competitive compensation and benefits package that in part makes up for the loss of tips. "Existing shift supervisors have been offered the choice of applying for a shift manager position or of moving to a barista position," reports Nation's Restaurant News. "The latter has a lower pay scale, but baristas can share in tips." * Starbucks restructures "shift supervisor" position in Massachusetts
