The Washington Football Team was fined $10 million for sexual misconduct

The NFL is fining the Washington Football Team $10 million following the conclusion of an investigation of sexual misconduct in the organization.

The fine is the largest the league has ever handed down as a form of punishment to any NFL team or individual.

Last year, The Washington Post reported that as many as 40 women who worked for the organization came forward and described the team’s workplace as toxic and demeaning toward female employees over the last decade.

The women alleged that they dealt with sexual harassment and sexual discrimination in the workplace. However, the D.C. Football Team had no suspensions or no loss of draft picks from the investigation, the league announced Thursday.

The league said that the fine is not a violation of any kind of contract. It is not the first time it has ever been handed down by the league.

The money will be donated to charity or any other organization that has been suspended or penalized for sexual misconduct.
