Is it ever okay for a boss to fire an employee by phone?
Just days after Yahoo’s CEO learned by phone that she was fired, our national scientific survey shows most Americans believe it is never right for an employer to fire an employee by phone.
Our poll found 71% said it was wrong for a boss to fire an employee by phone, 19% were okay with a work termination over the phone, and 10% said they had no opinion on the question.
