  • required Doctors note?

    California- My employeer at the start of the year sent out a letter to all employees stating that after 5 days of calling out sick that they must present a doctors note doccumenting their illness. This weekend I came down with the flu and called in sick both saturday and sunday. Today on the phone my manager said I must bring a doctor note doccumenting my illness before I can clock in and work again.

    I have a few questions...

    Can an employeer require a doctors doccumentation after two days of sickness?

    What about the letter given out to all employees that they have 5 days before doccumentation is required?

    If I get terminated was it wrongful/ discrimination? All other employees are given 5 days before a note is required?

    Please help... I feel this manager is singling me out, and after many years of hard work for this company I don't feel that it is fair for a new manager to come in and attempt to get me fired.
