No More Pink-slips: Radio Shack uses e-mail to fire 400 employees as part of planned job cuts.
RadioShack Corp. notified about 400 workers by e-mail that they were being dismissed immediately as part of planned job cuts. But don't think Radio Shack is as heartless as it seems:
Employees at the Fort Worth headquarters got messages Tuesday morning saying: "The work force reduction notification is currently in progress. Unfortunately your position is one that has been eliminated."
Company officials had told employees in a series of meetings that layoff notices would be delivered electronically, spokeswoman Kay Jackson said. She said employees were invited to ask questions before Tuesday's notification on a company intranet site.
