What? Yet more rights for consumers?
From 1 October 2014,
amendments to the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading
Regulations 2008 gave consumers a new right to claims damages from
a business which is found to be in breach of them.
In order to highlight the
issues affecting all businesses who supply either goods or services
to consumers, Rollits is holding a FREE breakfast briefing on
Friday, 23 January 2015 at 9am at their offices in Wilberforce
Court, Hull to update business owners on the latest risk to their
Partner George Coyle, who
heads Rollits' Regulatory Team said:
"All businesses that trade
with consumers need to be up to speed with the amendments to the
Consumer Protection from Unfair Commercial Practices Regulations as
they expose those who fall foul of these regulations to
significantly increased financial risks. It is bad enough to
be convicted and fined but it will add 'insult to injury' to then
have to pay the consumer damages as well"
