It depends on what the court ordered him to do.  If the court orders him not to be around places where alcohol is sold, including his place of employment, then he will have to change his profession.  Some judges will allow people to remain as bartenders if they agree to rigorous testing to insure they aren't "sampling the product."  If your son isn't sure about what is required of him, then he needs to review his conditions of probation with a criminal defense attorney.  Better to know than to risk a sanction of jail time by the judge.
