Service Charge distribution is always a tricky business in most resorts. While none of the resorts seems to be able to give away whatever is received as service charge to staff on an equitable basis, most of the new hotels and new managements seems to have overcome this problem and are giving significant amounts of money with the salaries each month.
Traditionally resorts treat service charge as a part of their revenue but with new labor laws makes it quite clear that its money which shall be distributed equally among staff. Some resorts such as Hulhule Island Hotel employs elaborate schemes to grade staff according to the years of service and performance and weigh service charge distribution according to that grading which is all but illegal now.
