What Are Unfair Business Practices?
Unfair business practices are actions that are considered unethical or predatory to businesses and consumers, and are prohibited by the law.
These practices include fraud, false advertising, deceptive pricing, and any practice that leads to unfair results for businesses and customers.
Many state and federal laws have been implemented to prevent such unfair business practices, like the well-known antitrust laws.
It can be difficult to define unfair business practices, and difficult to understand how you can protect yourself and your business against them.
Moreover, it can be intimidating to report unfair business practices and seek compensation from corporations and insurance companies. Small to medium business owners might feel discouraged to report these practices even if they are harmful to them.

A lot of different situations can be categorized as unfair business practices. When you discuss your case with Alina Bagasian, she will explain to you if a business practice is unfair and the legal course of action available to you.
Let’s review the most common types of unfair business practices:
Fraud: Violating state or federal law that has consequences for other businesses and your customers. For example, a fraud involving a non-delivery of merchandise, after the customer has made a payment to the company.
False and misleading advertising: Deceptive advertising that makes promises that the company doesn’t keep. For example, announcing that a free good will be given with the purchase of a product, but it is never given to the customer.
Misrepresentation by a business: Convincing someone to sign a contract based on false claims. For example, a business contract might mention that the plumbing and electrical appliances in an office space are in perfect condition, however, they are not working.
Insurance claims and their settlement: When an insurer tries to avoid, delay, or misrepresent a claim that needs to be paid to an insured party. For example, your insurer makes a modification to a contract and then settles a claim based on this modification. Your professional lawyer will inform you of your state’s unfair claim laws.
Antitrust violations: Actions that prevent commercial trade from being conducted fairly for all players. For example, if a company undertakes actions to impose a monopoly in a region, preventing other businesses from competing fairly in the same geographical zone.
Non-compliance with manufacturing standards: When a company doesn’t respect manufacturing quality standards. It refers to the poor quality of the work environment, products, and manufacturing practices. For example, manufacturing products that have defects or using harmful or forbidden chemicals that are dumped and released into the water or air.
