In 1972 and 1976 the laws were extended to include all large companies, increasing the influence that workers have on internal management matters and in particular employment structural questions. The general Co-determination Act of 1976 is applicable to all companies with more than 2 000 employees. Although the basic provision regarding the make-up of the supervisory boards remains equal to that of the Iron and Steel Co-determination Act, details limit the influence of labour in this law. First, one of the representatives of the workers' side has to be an employee of the management level, who does not necessarily represent the interests of the employed. Furthermore, the chairperson of the supervisory board cannot be nominated without consent of the employer. The chair can cast the decisive vote in tied situations in the board.

Workers representation for small and medium-sized companies is regulated in the Works Constitution Act of 1972 (Betriebsverfassungsgesetz). In joint stock companies with up to 2 000 employees, and in any other type of companies with 500 – 2 000 employees, the share of workers' representatives on the supervisory boards is one third. In smaller companies, employees do not have any extended influence on management. However, they can form workers’ councils (Betriebsräte) that have a say in social and personnel matters in companies with five or more employees. The law commits workers' councils to compromise with companies rather than seeking confrontation. It explicitly forbids exertion of pressure on companies. The Works Constitution Act ensures representation of both unionized and nonunion workers however because of high levels of unionisation in Germany, union members dominate most council.

The laws were extended in 1972 and 1976 to all large corporations, increasing the rights of workers to influence in plant management and job structuring. The general Codetermination Act of 1976 affects all corporations with more than 2,000 employees.
