Sacked by text and unfair dismissal

I don't think this is the first time I have referred to a story about an employee sacked via a new form of information communication technology.

Another story emerged over the past few days involving a "bar maid" sacked via text message, except this time the employee filed for unfair dismissal.

The verdict: A £14,000 pay out from the employer for failing to follow standard disciplinary procedures.

For more details see Dundee barmaid payout after text sacking (BBC News).
