Direct Selling Legal Update 2021

With 2022 just around the corner, we look at some of the legal issues which have been relevant to those operating in the direct selling sector in Australia in 2021.

Some of the issues which we are dealing with regularly include whether agreements can include class action waivers and/or unfair terms, Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS) compliance obligations, privacy and data protection requirements, as well as what claims may be made when conducting marketing campaigns.
