With an onslaught of reports about online content moderators facing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) because of their work, one company has found a solution… to possible legal troubles, that is: Make workers sign a document acknowledging PTSD as a risk of the job.
According to a new report from The Verge , Accenture, a company contracted by YouTube for content moderation services, is now requiring its workers to sign such a document.
This new requirement began just days after The Verge published its report about PTSD amongst workers at the company’s Austin, Texas location.
As The Verge also points out, Accenture makes no commitment to provide assistance to employees who incur PTSD while performing their duties.
Content moderators who spoke to The Verge about the PTSD document said they were warned about termination if they did not comply and sign it.
