Franchisors engaging in misleading and deceptive conduct can face stressful and expensive legal action.

Misleading and deceptive conduct occurs if your franchise takes actions that mislead or deceive a person or are likely to mislead or deceive a person.

Usually, that person is a proposed or actual franchisee. Importantly, there does not need to be an intention to mislead to fall foul of the law.

To help you understand your obligations as a franchisor and avoid conduct that could be construed as misleading or deceptive, LegalVision has published the Franchisor Guide to Misleading and Deceptive Conduct.

This guide explains:

  • misleading and deceptive conduct;
  • how franchisors can avoid this conduct;
  • leasing laws and misleading and deceptive conduct;
  • mitigating the risks of this conduct the role and powers of the ACCC;
  • consequences of failing to comply with the Code; and
  • a misleading and deceptive conduct checklist.
