(a) Every employer of an employee engaged in any occupation in which gratuities have been customarily and usually constituted and have been recognized as a part of remuneration for hiring purposes shall be entitled to an allowance for gratuities as a part of the hourly wage rate provided in § 11-4-210 in an amount of no less than three dollars and sixty-two cents ($3.62) per hour, provided that the employee actually received that amount in gratuities and that the application of the foregoing gratuity allowances results in payment of wages other than gratuities to tipped employees, including full-time students subject to the provisions of § 11-4-210, of no less than two dollars and sixty-three cents ($2.63) per hour.

(b) In determining whether an employee received in gratuities the amount claimed, the Director of the Division of Labor may require the employee to show to the satisfaction of the director that the actual amount of gratuities received by him or her during any work week was less than the amount determined by the employer as the amount by which the wage paid the employee was deemed to be increased under this section.
