ACCC on warpath over unfair contract terms!

ACCC Chairman Sims has given a strong indication that he wants power to prosecute companies over unfair contract terms. In a recent speech, he lamented the lack of an offence for including unfair contract terms and the ACCC’s inability to impose penalties if such terms are declared void in a civil action. Clearly he wants to challenge the temptation to keep such clauses in contracts until a customer arcs up!
