About this course

As a business owner or employee, it is important that you understand your obligations, as well as the rights of consumers.

While consumer laws differ between jurisdictions, the principles remain similar. Where it’s relevant, local regulations and law aims to protect consumers and businesses from unfair business practices.

In Australia, this is enforced by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Safetrac’s ‘Consumer Protection and Unfair Business Conduct’ course provides the training to understanding your rights and responsibilities under the law, the implications for your business and helps to meet jurisdictional requirements.
