Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


Extract: Information about patterns of regulation globally help to inform a better understanding of commercial regulation and to identify the most promising approaches to regulating the sector. This paper surveys legislation impacting upon the conduct of and exit from franchise contracts, referred to as 'conduct' or 'relationship' legislation. This legislation regulating the performance of the relationship establishes the rules that govern the franchisor - franchisee interaction after the contract has been signed. It alters the rights of parties, 'to freely contract among themselves, setting ground rules on aspects of the relationship such as termination, non-renewal, rights of franchisees to form associations, purchasing requirements, transfer rights, and system expansion.'
