WINTER PARK, FL (WWBT) -

Employees of a restaurant in Florida are outraged - not only were they laid off without any warning, it was done by text message!

The owner of Barducci's Italian Bistro, Gregory Kennedy, sent out the message on the Fourth of July.  the message says, "I unfortunately need to inform you that I have been forced to close Barducci's effective immediately."

More than a dozen other employees were let go, all receiving the same message. Now the employees want to know if they will get their final paychecks, and customers want refunds on Groupons they bought for the restaurant.

Kennedy says he is working to get the employees their paychecks as quickly as possible.
