Facebook has been forced to release the names of its employees who are engaged in consensual sex work, after the social network faced backlash for not disclosing who was paying for the activities of its female employees.
Facebook has been criticized for failing to disclose the identities of those employees who were paying for their own sex, and the company has since released the names, but now it has released the details of the paid sex acts.
The social media giant disclosed the names and salaries of those who were paid by their employer for sex, but it is not disclosing the identities, the Hill reported Monday.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Facebook has spent $5 million since April on a “covariance program” to help prevent sexual harassment and sexual exploitation on the social media platform.
The program, which is separate from the company’s “zero tolerance” policy, requires companies to disclose who pays for their employees’ activities.
“The information disclosed today should help ensure that all women, men, and LGBTQ people are treated fairly when it comes to our workplace,” a Facebook spokesperson told the WSJ.
