Apple Inc. is paying $3.5 billion to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former employees alleging the company subjected them to “vicious, pervasive, and pervasive” sexual harassment and discrimination, the tech giant said Wednesday.

The settlement covers more than 100 current and former employees of Apple Inc., as well as its former global head of human resources, the company said in a statement.

Apple is also admitting no wrongdoing, and agrees to pay $15 million in damages to the women, as well.

Apple said in its statement that the settlement, which was approved by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, was reached in exchange for the victims’ confidentiality and that it will not use the settlement to settle for less than the damages plaintiffs alleged.

Apple has also agreed to implement new policies and procedures for workplace harassment.

Apple also has agreed to pay a $25 million civil penalty to the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The suit, filed in December 2016, alleged that women at Apple had been subjected to unwanted sexual advances and verbal comments, sexual harassment, and demeaning treatment during their employment.

In November, a jury found that Apple had violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the 1964 Civil Rights act, by refusing to pay the $13 million in back wages and reinstatement payments to at least nine former employees.

The company had previously settled with more than 200 employees.

The U.K. court of arbitration for commercial disputes agreed to the terms of the settlement in January.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
