Sale of liquor by certain employees 18 years of age or older
  • minimum age requirements

(1) Any employee 18 years of age or older of a person who holds an off-premises sales license from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission may sell any alcoholic liquor authorized by such license on the licensed premises.

(2) Any employee 18 years of age or older of a person who holds a wholesale malt beverage and wine license from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission may assist the licensee in the delivery of any alcoholic liquor authorized by such license.

(3) During any inspection of a licensed premises, the commission may require proof that a person performing work at the premises meets any applicable minimum age requirement created under this chapter or under commission rules. If the person does not provide the commission with acceptable proof of age upon request, the commission may require the person to immediately cease any activity that is subject to a minimum age requirement until the commission receives acceptable proof of age. If the activity is the sole lawful basis for the person to be present on the premises, the commission may require that the person leave the premises. This subsection does not apply to a person temporarily at the premises to make a service, maintenance or repair call, to make a delivery or for other purposes independent of the premises operations.

(4) If a person performing work that is subject to a minimum age requirement has not provided proof of age requested by the commission under subsection (3) of this section, the commission may request that the licensee or a manager of the premises provide proof that the person meets any applicable minimum age requirement created under this chapter or under commission rules. Failure of the licensee or manager to respond to a request made under this subsection by providing acceptable proof of age for a person is prima facie evidence that the licensee has allowed the person to perform work at the licensed premises in violation of a minimum age requirement.
