DO NOT KNOCK
RECENT FEDERAL COURT DECISION
The Do Not Knock sticker was held to be legally enforceable under the Australian Consumer Law in the Federal Court last week. The decision means ignoring the sticker could lead to a fine of $10,000 for an individual and $50,000 for a business.
WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?
Consumer Action Law Centre developed the sticker in response to the huge number of cases it was seeing where door-to-door salespeople had mislead or pressured families into deals which often left them worse off.
The Federal Court decision sends a clear message to door-to-door salespeople across the nation.
Australians have a right to enjoy their personal time without the unwanted distraction of salespeople.
WHAT DID THE COURT FIND?
The court found that the sticker “was an unambiguous request to leave the premises”.
It was found that the picture of the fist together with the words Do Not Knock were sufficient.
