I work in a tipped or commissioned position, will I be compensated for lost earnings?
Yes, team members who work in tipped and commissioned positions will be compensated for those lost earnings at an average of previously reported earnings and based on average hours worked.  Our accounting team is working to gather the data at this time and will have tip rates available very soon.

Will I continue to accrue PTO during this temporary closure?
