Frequently Asked Questions
We understand that transparency and clarity in costs and legal fees is important to every business. For this reason, we offer fixed fees where possible, including for reviewing or drafting your retail agreements, such as your sales and POS terms and conditions or returns policies.
As regulatory compliance is a broad practice area, the cost of our services can vary depending on the scope of your matter. For advisory matters, we suggest getting in touch with us and we can provide an estimate of costs.
We can assist in the very early stages of establishing your business to draft compliant legal documents from the get-go, or you can engage us any time to review your existing practices.
We generally recommend annual reviews as the Australian Consumer Law is often changing.
The short answer is, most likely yes. If your store staff have made a representation to a customer that a product can do something or is suitable for their particular needs, then it is likely the case that you will be liable if the product does not meet those needs, under the Australian Consumer Law. There have been a number of cases where retailers have been hit with ACCC penalties for this kind of conduct so it is important to train your staff in compliance.
We offer compliance training and can draft easy-to-understand staff guidelines. If you are interested, contact us for a fixed fee quote.
