Facebook parent Meta has randomly terminated 60 workers using an algorithm.

The contract employees were working for Meta via Accenture's Texas branch, according a Business Insider report.

Accenture provides hourly workers to Meta for its business-integrity and content moderation services, under a $500 million annual contract.

The workers received notice of their termination via a video call on the 16th August. They were told they would no longer be working as of 2nd September, and their salary would stop on 3rd October.

The workers were told they were selected 'at random,' but no other information was given as to why they were being fired.
