As a franchisor, if you are accused of misleading and deceptive conduct, you could face stressful and expensive legal action from a potential or existing franchisee. As it stands, this area of consumer law is among the most litigated in Australia.
To ensure you understand your obligations, LegalVision is holding a free webinar. Emma Jervis (Practice Group Leader) and Rebecca Wood (Practice Group Leader) explain:
what misleading and deceptive conduct is, and how to identify it within your franchise network;
real-world case studies, and how the allegations impacted those franchise brands;
practical steps you should implement to avoid misleading and deceptive conduct; and
how to respond if an allegation is raised.
Following the webinar, there will be a live Q&A. If you are unable to make it, you can still register and we will send you a copy of the recording.
