Alcohol Work Requirement Amendments
This bill changes the current requirements for establishments with liquor licenses and those they employ that can be in management positions. Currently, state law prohibits anyone from managing an establishment with a liquor license if they have a prior criminal history. This means that great employees who happen to have a criminal history are prevented from being promoted to manager, or the establishment risks losing their liquor license. This bill will allow for individuals with a criminal history to stay employed and to be employed in management positions after a certain amount of time passes from the underlying criminal history. The law should promote individuals turning their lives around and not strap them with the weight of bad past decisions.
