As Amends the Law Today


 Section 18897.38 is added to the Business and Professions Code, to read:

 (a) An athlete agent shall not send or cause to be sent, an athlete who is a minor to any location that would be hazardous or detrimental to the health, safety, morals, or education of the minor, the character of which place the athlete agency could have ascertained upon reasonable inquiry. In determining what is hazardous or detrimental to “morals” pursuant this section, due regard shall be given to the act proscribed by Sections 311 to 314, inclusive, of the Penal Code.
(b) An athlete agent shall not enter any contract on behalf of an athlete who is a minor that requires the minor to appear at any event or establishment where alcoholic beverages or other intoxicating substances are sold to be consumed on the premises or where they are served, unless the athlete who is a minor is at all times accompanied by and within the sight or sound of a parent, guardian, or the athlete agent.
(c) It is the intent of the Legislature that this section be interpreted consistently with the interpretations of Sections 1700.33 and 1700.34 of the Labor Code and the regulations adopted thereunder.
