A lawsuit that accused the U.S. Postal Service of discriminating against injured workers has been settled for millions of dollars.

A federal judge in Denver approved the settlement of the class-action suit.

An estimated 25,000 postal employees who've been hurt on the job and reassigned since 1992 are eligible to apply for part of the settlement.

It offers $25,000 each to employees who can show they were discriminated against because of their rehabilitation status.

The agreement includes no admission of wrongdoing by the Postal Service.

It could take years to process claims under the settlement.
