Texting is never the right way for firing or break ups. What happened to being sincere and having a face to face conversation?

I'm pretty sure there's laws against the way you're fired. even if you'd had a written warning, verbal warning etc, your boss isn't allowed to text you to tell you you're fired. sue their asses!!

I'm pretty sure you're just making up laws. Few people are guaranteed a job so if you're legally allowed to be fired, they can skywrite it for all the law cares. Don't waste your money on lawyers, OP. Crazy people happened. So many people go nuts when they are no longer wanted and the other parties are too scared it might happen to them and be uncomfortable.

#68 Even if it's not law you can't fire someone by txt. For a start there's no guarantee they get the txt and then you have to fire them all over again when they turn up for work anyway..

#6 Fair enough, people in the work place should be professional enough to fire them face to face. However, do you realise just how hard it is to have to fire someone? It's horrible. OP you boss should have at least given you a letter or sent an email though.

I just saw in the news here (Australia) that this woman received a $60,000 payout for being fired by text and unfair dismissal. of course it would vary country to country, but the laws do exist.

i swear on muffins that there was a period before the 'take care!' when i posted that. or maybe i'm just making that up to appear less dumb on the internet. you decide.

I was thinking the same thing haha. The getting fired over text is kind of an FML, but the last part was un-necessary to add.

If you worked for a legit company I would think they would have to have something in writing to fire you, texting is not only unprofessional it's irresponsible. It doesn't sound like you had a very good employer but I know getting fired still sucks, sorry OP.
