FORT WORTH, Texas -- Hundreds of RadioShack workers learned they had mail -- but no jobs.
The electronics giant is getting some flack for sending pink slips by e-mail.
Workers at the company's headquarters in Fort Worth found they were unemployed on Tuesday with the click of a mouse.
The layoffs took effect immediately, with RadioShack cutting some 400 jobs.
A spokeswoman defended the e-mails, saying workers had been told during meetings that that's how it would be done.
But a management professor at the University of North Texas said the electronic notification could be seen as dehumanizing to employees
