TRADE PRACTICES ACT 1974 – SECT 53B

Misleading conduct in relation to employment

A corporation shall not, in relation to employment that is to be, or may be, offered by the corporation or by another person, engage in conduct that is liable to mislead persons seeking the employment as to the availability, nature, terms or conditions of, or any other matter relating to, the employment.

Ok… so we know it’s illegal… so why do recruitment companies engage in misleading conduct…and get away with it?

The Trade Practices Act 1974 can be accessed in its entirety here.
