City Authorities in Paris to face $110,000 fine after appointing many women to senior positions

A $110,000 fine has been slapped on city authorities in Paris after appointing too many women to senior positions.

The fine is being imposed by France’s public services ministry. The move comes after Paris city hall made appointments in the year 2018. In that year, 11 women and five men were employed, making 69 per cent of women employment.

It must be noted that dating back to 2013, there is a rule that states that one gender should not account for more than 60 percent of people appointed to management positions.
