WE CARE ABOUT OUR TEAM
Since June 2018, Jersey Crab Shack has guaranteed that all employees over 18 will earn at least the equivalent of the Living Wage for every hour worked. This amount is £2.70 per hour more than the current Jersey Minimum Wage and is reviewed annually. Many of our team earn more than the Living Wage and everyone who has worked for Jersey Crab Shack for more than a year also gets their birthday off work, if it’s a day they normally work. So customers won’t be served by a team member working on their birthday!
For all our team we will guarantee that the hourly rate plus tips will be at least £10.20 an hour plus holiday entitlement. Unlike some restaurants, 100% of our customer tips are distributed to staff. Tips are a part of the hospitality industry and until a service charge is made compulsory, as it is in France where the price you see on the menu includes a service element, we feel we can’t increase prices and stop tipping due to the competitive environment. We would be supportive of the States of Jersey and UK changing the law to follow France.
For more information on our wage policy and working at Jersey Crab Shack, please see the news section jprestaurants.com our group website.
We are delighted to support this Living Wage initiative following close behind our recent green initiative “Eating towards a greener Jersey”. We believe this is the right approach for local businesses to take and demonstrates that hospitality can be a rewarding career path for islanders and contribute to the quality of life in Jersey.
