In the past 2 years, Ford Motor Company has settled with an EEOC Harassment Investigation for $10.125 Million and in March was ordered to pay $16.8 Million to an ex-employee for discrimination and retaliation. Unfortunately, allegations and lawsuits of discrimination are not new for Ford Motor Company. In fact, if you do a good Google search, these stories of mistreatment are widespread throughout the company.
