Germany Enacts Law on Mandatory Quota for Women in Business

On 6 March 2015, the German Bundestag passes a law (the Frauenquote) that aims to ensure the equal participation of women and men in the management of business and public office. The Frauenquote entered into force on 1 May 2015. The new regulation, although commonly referred to as a “women’s quota” is legally constructed to ensure that both genders are represented by as many individuals as necessary to meet the mandatory statutory minimum quota.

For more about the mandatory quota including the main effects, obligations and sanctions for infringements, read the full article in International News: Focus on Private Equity.
