    Q463: Can someone under the age of 18 work in a bar?

    A person under the age of 18 can work in a bar, as long as they are supervised continually by a responsible person, such as the licence holder or bar manager. They cannot sell alcohol unless every sale is authorised by an adult.

    Normal employment law applies to children working, see question in related information for further details.

    Protecting children from harm is one of the primary objectives in licensing law and local authorities can impose additional conditions to premises banning children altogether, if it is considered necessary.
