Sacked Kenya Moderators say Mediation with Meta Collapses

Facebook content moderators in Kenya have announced the collapse of settlement talks with Meta, triggering a renewed court battle. In March, 184 moderators filed a lawsuit against Meta’s contracted company, Sama, citing unfair dismissal and inhumane working conditions.


A Kenyan court initially suspended the mass sacking in June and allowed for out-of-court settlement discussions two months later. However, these talks broke down, and the moderators intend to sue for contempt of court. The mediation, overseen by Kenya’s former chief justice Willy Mutunga, was scheduled for 21 days but saw little progress.


Meta has yet to respond to this development. The company faces two other legal cases in Kenya, one related to working conditions and another concerning online hate speech.
