It is your employer's cash box. You have no claim to be present without owner/manager consent.

If tips are split unevenly you may have a claim. Contact Florida's Consumer Rights Agency for guidance.

This is not a legal opinion, simply an observation upon which you may not rely. A legal opinion is available when you formally retain an attorney.

Is this really enough to fight over? In my career I often say "thank goodness for lawsuits", but most of the time I would not wish them on my worse enemy.
