Management in the restuarant industry are fucking idiots. I too, got fired (well forced to resign) for having to go to the hospital for an allergic reaction to a medication I was taking. Get out if the industry now - all managers are fucking idiots

In some states you can be fired without reason. Especially if you no call-no show.. You don't have grounds to sue.. Especially since most hospitals have telephones..

You cannot legally be fired for missing work while in the hospital. Get a record proving you were there, take it to the manager. If you are not rehired then you'll have been wrongfully terminated and will have grounds to sue, but only then.

wow so if he was umcouncious, or dehydrated or other grosser bodily trouble you think that phone is both (a) available (most er or other short term has no phone) and (b) usable in that state. sound like a bitch to me.

Call the health dept. and report them.And then go get ur unemployment /workman's comp. Then call a lawyer and sue for wrongful termination plus pain and suffering and medical bills. Stick it to them before they have a chance to stick it to you. The only one who will lok out for you. Is you yourself not anyone else.

well said, that is why there are labour laws in place op to stop assholes like that firing you, they have no right to do so, so yes take it to the labor board or health inspectors haha they will have a heyday with a food poisoning case.

They also have right to work states, which means you can be terminated without reason... Given that the termination isn't based on sex, religion, race, etc., there are no grounds to sue...
