The federal government has outlined plans to extend its laws on unfair contract terms to a broader range of small businesses. Firms with annual turnover of up to $10m will be covered by the laws under the proposed reforms, while the threshold will be increased from 20 employees to 100. Assistant Treasurer Stuart Robert has stressed that the government will not pursue any reforms without consulting with all relevant stakeholders.
