In the meantime, employees are being forced to go from their homes to their offices to work against any organization. Employees are not interested in working in the office in Corona. Facebook has been accused of forcing workers to return to office.

More than two hundred Facebook workers working in different countries have made this allegation.

The plaintiffs are acting as Facebook's content moderators. From the beginning of Corona till now they were doing office work from home.

The allegations were made in an open letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and CEO Sheryl Sandberg.

Complainants say Facebook is putting their employees at undue risk for profit. They demanded the authorities to extend the tenure of the home office, risk allowance and some other facilities.

A Facebook spokesperson told the BBC that 15,000 content reviewers were working on Facebook. Most of them are working at home. Authorities put pressure on staff to come to the office and work on some important needs. He said there are allegations that many are working in other places in the name of home office.
