CANBERRA, Australia - South Australian parliamentarian Tony Piccolo discusses how the laws down under are stacked against franchise owners. In a statement to MySmallBusiness today, Piccolo cautions about buying franchises ”because the current laws are stacked against them.”
Pressure is continuing to mount on Small Business Minister Craig Emerson Emerson to act on a joint Parliamentary report into franchising, handed to his office five months ago.
The Coalition’s small business spokesman Steven Ciobo has finally called on Minister Emerson to ‘’show leadership” and respond to issues raised by the inquiry, particularly in areas such as good faith and dispute resolution.
The article, Act on franchising report, Minister told goes on to say that whilst the franchising issue appears to be facing a loss of political impetus since the economic downturn, disputes appear to be on the rise with new contracts being pushed onto franchisees.
