It will also explain:* which contracts and terms are covered by the new law
* the types of terms that may be unfair* how to determine if a contract term may be unfair
* what you can do if you receive a contract that you think includes an unfair term.This webinar is hosted by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission and the Australian Securities & Investments Commission.
