The NYS Liquor Authority requires that certain signs be posted conspicuously in all licensed premises.

It can even result in the closing of your establishment for several days. Don’t risk it. Know the rules!

Worker’s Compensation Insurance And Disability Benefits
It is most important that every licensed premise has readily available proof of an up-to-date policy covering Worker’s Compensation Insurance And Disability Benefits. You must be ready to show this proof to a competent authority upon demand. So make sure that any employee acting in charge of the premises at any time can produce this proof when necessary.
Failure to have proof of an up-to-date policy available to show to a competent authority can result in your establishment being closed for several days. Furthermore, you could be arrested if the insurance has lapsed.
If you are cited for the violation of any of the above regulations, it is wise to seek the advice of your attorney. These are serious violations of the rules and regulations of the New York State Liquor Authority. Such violations can prove to be very costly!
