Radio shack did do this a few years ago:

Quote:
FORT WORTH (AP) — RadioShack followed through on its announced plans to cut about 400 jobs, but the electronics retailer has been forced on the defensive about its method of notifying laid-off employees by e-mail.

Employees at the Fort Worth headquarters received an e-mail Tuesday morning telling them they were being dismissed immediately.

I'm thinking about writing an Outlook macro that adds a 'Fire All' button next to 'Reply All'.

Pretty lame to get fired via e-mail.

Think you might walk right over to your boss and 'insert terrible reaction here'
