New law taking effect on July 1 that will impact employees at over 56,000 businesses in California that are licensed by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). This includes businesses such as restaurants, bars, wineries, breweries, and any business that sells alcohol for consumption on the premises. The department is reaching out to you to see if you can help spread the word about this new law, California Assembly Bill 1221, The Responsible Beverage Service Training Act, since it may impact some of your members in the San Fernando Valley.
AB 1221 will mandate that every alcohol server and their managers be trained in Responsible Beverage Service and certified by ABC within 60 days. Attached are a picture that includes very brief text about the law, an informational flyer, and a guest article. If you could be so kind as to post any of these on your website, publish them in a newsletter, or share with your members and stakeholders, ABC would be truly grateful.
Thank you so much for your support helping us inform the public about the new law.
