(1) The Oregon Liquor Control Commission may revoke or suspend a service permit, or impose a civil penalty in lieu of or in addition to suspension as provided by ORS 471.322 (Civil penalty in lieu of or in addition to short-term suspension of certain licenses and permits), if it finds or has reasonable grounds to believe any of the following to be true:

(a) That the permittee has made any false statement in the application for the permit.

(b) That the permittee has been convicted of a felony, of violating any of the liquor laws of the state, general or local, or any misdemeanor or violation of any municipal ordinance committed on the licensed premises.

(c) That the permittee has performed or permitted any act which would constitute a violation of any provision of this chapter or any rule of the commission, if the act were performed or permitted by any licensee of the commission.

(2) The issuance, suspension or revocation of a permit under ORS 471.360 (Service permit required) to 471.390 (Duplicate or new permit) does not relieve a licensee from responsibility for any act of an employee on the licensee’s premises.

(3) When there has been a violation of this chapter or any rule adopted thereunder upon any premises licensed by the commission, the commission may revoke or suspend either the service permit of the employee who violated the law or rule or the license of the licensee upon whose premises the violation occurred, or both the permit and the license.

(4) The commission may revoke or suspend any license issued by the commission if the licensee knowingly indorses a person’s application for a permit when the person has been refused a permit or has had a permit suspended or revoked, or when the licensee fails to comply with any provision to be performed by the licensee under ORS 471.360 (Service permit required) to 471.390 (Duplicate or new permit).

(5) Civil penalties under this section shall be imposed as provided in ORS 183.745 (Civil penalty procedures). [1979 c.788 §§6,8; 1981 c.599 §5; 1991 c.734 §43; 1995 c.301 §39; 1999 c.351 §55]
