The South Australian State Government intends to introduce a Small Business Commission with jurisdiction over franchising matters. The introduction of a Commissioner appears to be based upon a Bill proposed by Tony Piccolo MP to introduce a set of State based franchise relationship laws, adopting the Federal Franchising Code as a State law.
"If a franchisee is being bullied, is being coerced, because of a contract they have signed, now they will have some redress." [via AdelaideNow]
Such a move has previously attracted sharp criticism from the Franchise Council of Australia, but has been welcomed by franchisees who have been left without redress in disputes with their franchisor.
