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
