Cognizant, a professional services firm, is to stop moderating “objectionable” content on behalf of Facebook and other internet firms.
Cognizant also has workers in India, Europe and Latin America.
It is believed its decision will result in around 6,000 job cuts.
The firm told the BBC: “We have determined that certain content work in our digital operations practice is not in line with our strategic vision for the company and we intend to exit this work over time. This work is largely focused on determining whether certain content violates client standards – and can involve objectionable materials.
