Drunk Bartender Sued

Drunk Bartender Sued ( Not actually this guy )

Is a drunk bartender sued for Drinking On The Job something you’ve seen before?

A bar sues bartender: The bar had it’s liquor license temporarily revoked because one of their bartenders was drunk at work while serving customers. I have purposely omitted his name because he’s got enough trouble.

As reported by Oregon Live, the lawsuit claims that the bartender was drunk on the job last January at the Barrel Room in Oregon, USA. Consequently, he is being sued and it’s very rare that a bar sues bartender.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission suspended the bars license.

The suspension begins on January 20th, 2019 and will last 21 days. As a result, owners of the bar estimate they will lose $115,000 US in lost sales earnings in the 21 days the Barrel Room will be legally prohibited from selling alcohol.

According to the lawsuit, the bartender admitted to Portland police that he had been drinking on the job that day and had been relieved of his duties because of this. As a result, the owners of the bar are now seeking damages from its former employee for $5,500 per day over 21 days for a total of $115,000 USD.

Furthermore, employees who serve alcohol in Oregon are required to have a permit issued by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. This applies to nightclubs, bars, restaurants, taverns, private clubs, lounges, etc. Because the bartender was drinking alcohol on the job, and drunk at work, consequently he had his service permit suspended for 18 days and was also penalized.
