The Hayne Royal Commission exposed terrible impacts that systemic greed and conflicts of interest have on ordinary consumers, including those claiming insurance for injury and illness. Three years on from the final report, what has meaningfully changed? Has the government delivered on its promises to act?
This webinar, presented by Josh Mennen, Principal Lawyer and National Litigation Leader at Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, will discuss these issues with reference to specific reforms that have improved consumer rights, such as the introduction of Unfair Contracts Terms to insurance and a less onerous duty of disclosure.
It will also cover the reforms that are still yet to be implemented including Enforceable Code Provisions and the use of Universal terms for default insurance provided by superannuation funds.
