Walmart will be the latest retailer to announce that it is phasing out tipping in the wake of an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment.
On Tuesday, Walmart will announce it will no longer accept cash for tipping.
The decision was announced in a statement by the company’s global head of public relations, Andrea Mancuso, who added that the move will help employees better deal with workplace harassment.
“We believe this is the right time to make this change,” she said in the statement.
The company will be phasing in the change in July, with the first stores expected to be up and running by the end of the year.
In addition to the shift, Walmart said it will be closing the retail section of its online store.
Walmart also said it is reviewing its compensation program to ensure it is working to create a “safe, nurturing, and inclusive workplace.”
It added that it has “implemented several new policies to address this issue” and will share more information on those efforts soon.
The retailer also said that it will hire more women in its workforce and is investigating ways to help employees with sexual harassment and workplace issues.
It is the latest in a series of moves Walmart has taken to combat harassment, with it last week removing its male-only “superclub” and pledging to “invest in better ways to prevent and address harassment and abuse.”
The retailer has also launched a program to promote diversity, hiring more women for positions in its stores.
