Mark Zuckerberg gives Facebook employees the entire Thanksgiving week off

According to an internal message he sent on Wednesday evening, boss Mark Zuckerberg gives all US employees the entire Thanksgiving week off. The move is designed to reward employees for working on “unprecedented challenges,” and could help boost morale after the company’s moderation policies came under fire from some employees.

The note states that all employees around the world have three extra days off – either Monday, November 23rd through Wednesday. November 25 or other days for specific teams or geographic regions.

“The idea here is to give as many people a break as possible. I hope you can disconnect and take the time to rest and recharge before the final rush of the year, “wrote Zuckerberg.

Internally, Facebook has had an unusually turbulent time. All employees have worked remotely since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, and the company rolled out a wide range of policies regarding misinformation and holding office in a politically charged summer and in the run-up to next Tuesday’s U.S. election.

In May and June, staff were upset after Facebook decided not to remove a post from President about widespread protests against the police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man. Facebook later restricted how and where employees could express political views on internal message boards.

More recently, the company has introduced a number of new election-related policies, but has sometimes struggled to enforce them consistently or explain such enforcement to outsiders. For example, earlier this week the company allowed the Trump campaign to run an ad saying he won the election, which was in direct contradiction to Facebook’s rules, and then justified the decision by stating the exact wording the ad – “President Trump is STILL your President” – would be true until January even if Trump loses.

Earlier on Wednesday, Zuckerberg testified before the US Senate Commerce Committee to defend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects online platforms like Facebook from liability for material their users post and allows them to view content without fear moderate legal retaliation.

Facebook reports its third quarter results on Thursday.
