Staff Service Charge Policy



Staff service charges refer to additional charges levied on customers’ bills, which are distributed among the staff as a form of gratuity.


  • The purpose of the service charge policy is to establish guidelines and procedures for the collection and distribution of staff service charges in our organization. The staff service charge is intended to recognize and reward exceptional service provided by our staff members.
  • To distribute the service charge equally and in a timely manner to the eligible permanent employees.


[x] % of the service charge collected from servicing guests will be distributed equally to all eligible permanent employees on a monthly and prorated basis.


  •  Service charge to be distributed will be calculated from the 25th of each month until the 24th day of the following month when the payroll attendance is cut off.
  • Newly hired employees and employees who resigned during the month will receive the prorated actual service charge based on actual work days and the estimated service charge till the end of the month. Service charge payment will be made with the salary cycle.
