    Essentially, what is considered excessive sick time is up to your employer.

    There is no law one way or the other. We earn one sick day per month at my current employer. However, that is quite generous. And, if I had an employee who was out sick one day per month, I would consider that excessive; based on the average work days in a year of 260, that's nearly 5% of work days missed.

    Twelve sick days a year would be very generous of the employer and will allow employees who really need the time to be out for an extended period without loss of pay. It also allows some employees who treat sick time as vacation time to abuse the employer.

    Yes, it could be, it is up to the employer, what they allow, my work place, states, they will fire you, if you have more than 6 sick times (not days, so you could be sick for 2 days, and it only counts as 1 sick time), per year. I am not aware, of any state laws, that state, you are legally allowed any sick days at all?
