The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 (Cth) have recently been amended to extend unfair contract term protection laws to small business contracts.

Since 12 November 2016, the courts have been able to declare that a term of a standard form small business contract is void if the term is considered unfair. The provisions have significant repercussions for the road transport industry, which relies heavily on standard form contracts for the carriage and storage of goods.
In this webinar, Gillian Bristow and Emily Ng from our heavy transport and logistics team will discuss:

  • the small business unfair contracts regime – which contracts are covered and when a term of a contract may be declared 'unfair'
  • the steps you can take to protect your business

This is a must-attend event for operators and advisers in the heavy transport industry looking to stay abreast of the latest legal developments.

We hope that you are able to join us.
