    Answered . Yes, if you are an employee-at-will you can be fired by text message or by any other means. There are no legal requirements regarding what form the news of a person's firing must take.
    As you were terminated, you may now be eligible to claim unemployment benefits. Contact Florida's Agency for Workforce Innovation in person, by phone or online if you are interested in filing a claim.
