LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Ford Motor Company has agreed to pay $10 million in order to end a harassment investigation.

Some workers were accused of harassing women and black employees at two plants in the Chicago area. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says it found probable cause that supported harassment claims.

The commission also says Ford retaliated against workers who complained.

Roughly 1,500 employees may be qualified for a payment.

Ford has handed out disciplinary action and dismissals.
