Corporate and Commercial - Changes to proposed B2B unfair contract laws

In previous editions of Briefly we have reported on the proposed extension of the “unfair contract terms” provisions of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL). These provisions came into operation on 1 January 2010 and currently only apply to standard form contracts for the supply of goods or services wholly or predominantly for personal domestic or household use or consumption (standard form consumer contracts). In other words, they do not currently apply to “business to business” transactions.

Employment – Long Service Leave (Calculation of Average Weekly Earnings) Amendment Bill 2015 (SA)

The Long Service Leave (Calculation of Average Weekly Earnings) Amendment Bill 2015 (SA) (the Amendment Bill) proposes to amend s 3(4)(a) and (b) of the Long Service Leave Act 1987 (SA) (the Act). The Bill was introduced into the House of Assembly and received its second reading speech on 9 September 2015.

The purpose of the amendment is to clarify that, in addition to periods of unpaid leave, any week where the casual or part-time worker is absent from work due to a compensable work-related injury, will be disregarded when calculating the average weekly earnings for the purposes of s 3(2) of the Act.
