ACCC has Code Enforcement in its Sights

Posted by Elizabeth Gore-Jones on 20 October 2016

"The ACCC has made it an enforcement priority to ensure small businesses receive the protections of industry codes of conduct, including the Franchising Code."

This is a direct quote of ACCC Deputy Chair, Dr Michael Schaper when commenting on proceedings the ACCC has recently issued seeking penalties under the (not so) new Franchising Code of Conduct.

If that isn't motivation enough to make sure franchisors are compliant with the Code then I don't know what is.

Do not be the ACCC's next test case/example to the franchising community/media release topic./subject of this blog.
