What this means for you

To mitigate the possibility of a class action, and its impact if one does eventuate, businesses should: 

  • Identify and actively manage areas of specific legal risk
  • Communicate clearly and openly with customers, investors and other stakeholders
  • Ensure good records are kept
  • Ensure product safety standards and regulations are met, and implement rigorous quality control processes
  • Prioritise data privacy and security, and 
  • Obtain appropriate insurance cover for potential risks.
