(a) The license of a vendor certified as a responsible vendor under this chapter may not be suspended or revoked for an employee's illegal sale of an alcoholic beverage to a person who is not of lawful drinking age if the employee had completed the applicable training prescribed by this chapter prior to committing such violation, unless the vendor had knowledge of the violation or should have known about such violation, or participated in or committed such violation. No vendor may use as a defense to decertification the fact that he was absent from the licensed premises at the time of noncompliance with this section.
(b) The board shall consider certification by a vendor in the responsible vendors program in mitigation of administrative penalties or fines for an employee's illegal sale of an alcoholic beverage to a person who is not of lawful drinking age.
