Upcoming free webinar for businesses on new unfair contract terms law

Are you a small business who's received a standard form contract on a 'take it or leave it' basis? Or are you a business which offers these contracts to small businesses?

If you are, you should attend a free government webinar to find out about a new law that will apply from 12 November 2016 which aims to protect small businesses from unfair contract terms.

The webinar, titled 'The new business-to-business unfair contract terms law: what you need to know and do now' is being held at 7pm AEDT on Wednesday 16 March 2016.

This webinar will provide a general overview of the new business-to-business unfair contract terms protections and, if you offer standard form contracts to small businesses, what you need to do before the law takes effect.

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. These two government regulators, alongside state and territory offices of fair trading, will be responsible for enforcing the new law.

To find out more about your protections and responsibilities under this law, register now to attend this.
