A state court judge in California has ordered coffee chain Starbucks to pay $106 million, which includes interest, to workers whose tips unfairly had been shared with supervisors. The court order also required that Starbucks cease letting supervisors share tips. The ruling covers more than 100,000 current and former workers, known as baristas, who worked for Starbucks in California since late 2000. The court’s order stated that the members of plaintiff class “are entitled to restitution against Starbucks in an amount equal to the amount paid out of pooled tips to shift supervisors during the class period.” Starbucks says it will appeal.
