New OLGR Penalty Rate applies from 1st July

As predicted, the new OLGR Penalty Unit has been raised to $121.90.

Most of the fines for breaches have remained the same in P/U terms – e.g. if a Minor is found to be consuming liquor on licensed premises, the Licensee receives a fine of 250 p/u, the staff member who poured the alcohol is fined 80 p/u and the minor 25 p/u.

This equates to $30,475,  $9,752 and $3,047 respectively.  Not an insignificant amount, and one which is sure to increase on a yearly basis.
