Focusing on the first sentence: "A tip is the sole property of the tipped employee . . . "
I read the part you bolded as meaning, "The employer may not require the employee to turn over tips . . . " In this case, "may" is the more formal word to use instead of "can" not. According to the Oxford dictionary, "The only difference between the two verbs is that one is more polite than the other. In informal contexts it’s perfectly acceptable to use can; in formal situations it would be better to use may."
In other words, the employer CAN NOT require the employee to turn over tips. At least, that's how I read it. YMMV.
Tourettes my azz. She need not even go there. The only thing Amy has is the uncanny ability to keep flapping her gums, filling in any possible gap in conversation so that no one else can get a word in edgewise and tell her the truth. In other words as long as she keeps talking, no one else can. She's a hot mess.

People use "Tourette's" like they use "psycho" and "bipolar." They're not literal descriptions of conditions, just idioms.
I'm no psychologist, but I'd bet that Amy has a personality disorder. A normal person wouldn't repeat the same behavior over and over while always blaming others. Nor would a normal person see herself mocked by millions of people and never think, "Maybe I'm the problem."
She's another one of those people who cause conflict, get a negative reaction, pretend to be a victim of the "haters," and then self-righteously fight to defend themselves against unfair attacks -- never acknowledging that they caused the furor. Some people create enemies so that they have someone to blame and never have to account for their own behavior. That's pretty much every reality TV villain you can think of as well as Sarah Palin.

My aging father came to BE LIKE THIS. It was just so odd that his behavior had changed. A battery of tests later and his SEROTONIN levels were all off wack. On Zoloff, my Dad is BACK and the best ever.
I wish Dr. Phil had offered to do testing on both of them.
I'm no psychologist either, and obviously can't diagnose, but from what I know she seems histrionic, borderline, narcissistic, antisocial.... oh, one could go on.Originally Posted by candor

What I do not understand is: the waitress in the 1st episode told Gordon she had several years experience as a waitress. And, from what was shown, she seemed pleasant and competent. So, why was she working there for no tips? Are waitress jobs in Scottsdale that hard to find?
