I got fired today for calling in sick. I was throwing up and diarrhea really bad. The thing is, I work with food in a grocery store in the deli. Am I supposed to come to work sick and get customers sick while I throw up all over the place?
1) I work with food
2) I had a doctors note and they said that doesnâ€™t matter
3) they said 1 sick day counts for an occurrence which left me at 5 occurrences for the year.
Can they legally fire me for calling in sick when I had a doctors note and the fact that I work with food. Also I live in Oregon. Idk if the laws are different in Oregon.
