Restaurant Faces Lawsuit After Customers Feel Tricked By “Suggested Gratuity” Feature On Bill

On your next visit to a restaurant, check your bill carefully. Beware of the “suggested gratuity” however, since that could be tricking you.

The “suggested gratuity,” is meant to be a useful guide in knowing the tip you are supposed to leave.

However, restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory are using some odd math to calculate tips. Because of this practice, a lawsuit has been filed and it is because of the apparent lack of change when the bill is split.

Example: If a $100 bill is split into two $50 bills, the tip is shown for the original amount, not for the amount split. Most people have seen this and can figure out the correct amount. However, some have realized they have been paying more than they needed to for the service.

This is the lawsuit The Cheesecake Factory is dealing with.
