This act amended the Fair Trading Act 1999 to replicate s 51AC of the Trade Practices Act. The change brings disputes between unincorporated traders into the net and means small businesses can take such disputes to VCAT. Headings in this article include:- VCAT's role, section 51AC case law, comparison with equitable doctrine, meaning of statutory notion of "unconscionable", non-renewal of retail leases, second reading speech and role of consumer & busienss affairs Victoria
