SB 826 - Currently, a liquor license cannot be denied, suspended, or revoked solely based on the fact that an employee of a licensee has been convicted of a felony unrelated to the manufacture or sale of liquor as long as the employee is not directly participating in retail sales of such liquor. This act would prohibit a liquor license from being denied, suspended, or revoked because of such employee's conviction regardless of whether he or she were involved in retail sales. The act specifies that the rules promulgated by the Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control may include provisions regarding offenders and the type of employment in licensed establishments in which different offenders may engage.
