Recommended changes to the Australian Consumer Law(“ACL”) could bring much-needed clarity to the entire not-for-profit sector. An amendment to Section 18 of the ACL to read that a person must not, in trade or commerce or in relation to fundraising activities, engage in conduct that is misleading or deceptive or is likely to mislead or deceive has been suggested.
In a recent decision of the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, penalties were imposed on a company director for breaches of the Fair Work Act, including:
• failure to pay the minimum wage required under the relevant Award;
• failure to pay casual loading;
• failure to pay weekend penalty rates; and
• failure to pay overtime.
