Direct Selling Legal Update 2023

With 2024 just “around the corner”, now is a good time to look at some of the legal issues which have been relevant in 2023 to those operating in the direct selling sector in Australia.

Issues which we have regularly advised on include how to conduct a product recall in Australia; identifying unfair terms in contracts and amending them to reduce risk; steps to take to be privacy compliant; and guidance on undertaking comparative advertising in a compliant way.
