(2) Section 10-102 or 10-103 sales-by-drink and section 10-110 C.O.L. restaurant-bar licensees.

 

a. Persons 18 through 20 years of age may be employed by sales-by-drink or C.O.L. licensees whose premises qualify as a restaurant-bar as defined in section 10-1, to work on the premises as waiters or waitresses.

b. Persons 16 and 17 years of age may be employed by sales-by-drink or C.O.L. restaurant-bar licensees to work on the premises if they do not sell, assist in the sale of, dispense, serve or deliver alcoholic beverages to any person. Licensees employing persons 16 or 17 years of age under this subsection shall, prior to employing the minor, require his or her parents or legal guardian to give their written consent to the employment, in a manner and form approved by the director. In addition to placing the minor's name in the register of employees, the consent and proof of the minor's age shall be maintained on file by the licensee and shall be available for inspection, at any time, by the director or the director's agents or the police department during the minor's term of employment.

Minors employed under this subsection may not deliver alcoholic beverages away from the licensed premises. Minors employed under this subsection must have a valid employee liquor permit in their possession as required under section 10-291.

 

(4) Sections 10-112, 10-113 and 10-114, original package sales licensees with 50 percent of gross sales other merchandise. Persons 18 through 20 years of age may be employed by original package sales licensees to work on the premises to stock, arrange displays, operate the cash register or scanner connected to a cash register, accept payment for and sack for carry-out alcoholic beverages if at least 50 percent of the gross sales made consists of goods, merchandise or commodities other than alcoholic beverages. Minors employed under this subsection may not deliver alcoholic beverages away from the licensed premises.
