Unfair Contract Terms Consultation

Unfair Contract Terms Consultation

Consultation on changes to the current Unfair Contract Term protections is now open, with the Treasury seeking submissions from interested parties including small, medium and large businesses through to individual consumers.

As part of the process, a number of consultation sessions are also expected to be held in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra.

Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, said the consultation will explore options to strengthen the existing protections for small businesses from unfair terms in standard form contracts.

Submissions will be open until 16 March 2020. For more information or to lodge a submission, stakeholders can visit:
