Paris pays fine for discrimination over hiring too many women into management positions

The French Ministry of Public Service has finded the city of Paris for €90,000 over discrimination - because it employs too many women in management positions.

Two years ago, Paris had advertised 16 new management posts - of which "eleven went to women and only five to men," according to Mayor Anne Hidalgo. The quota of women was 69 percent of the positions - too high, so the Ministry of Public Service.

It refers to a regulation according to which at least 40 percent of such posts must be filled by members of one sex. With only 31 percent, men were disadvantaged in the Paris tender, it said.
