Wells Fargo & Co. must offer 66 jobs to female and African-American applicants it rejected five years ago after the U.S. Department of Labor found the bank discriminated against them.

The company in 2014 discriminated against more than 2,300 candidates to be online customer service representatives and phone bankers in three U.S. cities, the Labor Department said in a statement Thursday. Wells Fargo must pay about $600,000 in back wages, benefits and interest to individuals, and offer jobs to original applicants as they open up.
