Meanwhile, an employer in the U.K. has taken electronic firing to another level. It decided to "sack-by-text message" when it terminated a store worker. The worker's cell phone beeped, giving her the bad news. According to The Associated Press, the "company defended the sacking-by-text message as a way to keep modern."
