Facebook will pay as much as $14 million in penalties as part of a settlement with the Justice Department over allegations it discriminated against Americans in favor of hiring foreign workers, officials announced on Tuesday.

The social media giant also agreed to do more to hire U.S. nationals.

'Facebook is not above the law, and must comply with our nation’s federal civil rights laws, which prohibit discriminatory recruitment and hiring practices,' said Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.

'Companies cannot set aside certain positions for temporary visa holders because of their citizenship or immigration status.'
