Free consumer law workshops for small businesses


Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is offering educational tools to help small businesses comply with Ohio consumer law.

The Attorney General’s Office enforces more than 25 consumer laws regarding advertising and business sales practices. To help businesses better understand these laws, the office’s Consumer Protection Section offers a free workshop, “Supporting Ohio Small Businesses,” which covers complying with Ohio consumer law and avoiding scams targeting small businesses.

Topics include advertising guidelines, cancellation rights of consumers, door-to-door sales, gift card requirements, and refund policies. 

The office also provides a guide on “Complying with Ohio Consumer Law” and a list of Ohio consumer laws on its website.

To request a workshop for your business organization or to download educational resources, visit or call 800-282-0515.
