Loch Fyne Restaurants (LFR), the casual dining concept owned by Greene King, is to adjust its pay structure in light of the confusion over the national minimum wage. The company said that the changes would see all LFR staff officially receive the basic minimum wage before any tips. LFR’s managing director Mark Derry told M&C Report: “Loch Fyne Restaurants has taken the decision to revise its pay policy. “With immediate effect the company will put in place the small increases necessary to ensure that all employees will be paid at least the national minimum wage before tips. Over and above this staff will continue to receive all tips.” Derry said the move would only affect a small number of staff that didnot receive a headline basic pay rate equal to or above national minimum wage. He also said that assertions in the national media that staff were paid national minimum wage was misleading, as many received significantly more through credit-card tips and cash tips.
