KENYA: META ORDERED TO CARE FOR MODERATORS

Meta has been ordered to ‘provide proper medical, psychiatric and psychological care’ to a group of moderators in Nairobi following a ruling in a Kenyan employment court. The instruction by judge Byram Ongaya formed part of a broader interim ruling that saw the moderators’ jobs restored after they sued Facebook owner Meta in March for what they termed a ‘sham’ mass redundancy. The moderators, who are looking to organise in a union, said mental health struggles, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicidal ideation, are a standard outcome of their harrowing work, which requires them to sift through dark material on the internet for long hours.
