The New York City Commission on Human Rights has fined Fox News $1m – the highest penalty ever issued by the city’s agency – for breaches of laws protecting workers from sexual harassment and job retaliation.

The first-of-its-kind settlement against a major news network by a civil rights enforcement agency follows the Commission’s investigation into high-profile reports alleging a culture of pervasive sexual harassment and retaliation at Fox News.
