New bill would require restaurants to pay for food handler training
MARCH 6, 2023
More than a decade ago, when a state bill required food handler training, the proposal remained silent on who should pay for the training – the restaurant, or the trainee. Two bills introduced this year would change that: one requires restaurants to pay for food handler training; the other requires all employers to pay for mandated training specific to their industries.
These bills are among 2,600 new bills the CRA Government Affairs Team has reviewed over the last few weeks.
