Kenyan court orders mediation in Meta labour dispute

A Kenyan court has given Facebook’s parent company Meta and content moderators suing it for unfair dismissal 21 days to resolve their dispute out of court. According to Reuters, the 184 content moderators are suing Meta and two subcontractors after they say they lost their jobs with one of the firms, Sama, for organising a union. The plaintiffs say they were then blacklisted from applying for the same roles at the second firm, Luxembourg-based Majorel, after Facebook switched contractors.
