About the webinar
The ACCC’s recent spate of enforcement actions have targeted businesses potentially misleading consumers due to a failure to properly disclose. This session takes a look at these recent enforcement actions and the lessons we can learn when it comes to disclosure, transparency and unconscionable conduct. It includes:
- Withheld information – Is this a breach of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL)?
- General duty to disclose information under the ACL:
- does it exist?
- how far does it extend?
- Misleading or deceptive conduct – silence is not golden
- Unconscionable conduct update
- Contracts for ongoing supply:
- maintaining trust and confidence obligations
- varying your terms and conditions from time to time – how to do it properly
- Case study – Recent corporate bad behavior, including Medibank Private; SensaSlim
