can an employer fire me for being sick?
I have worked at this place for 3 months and I missed 2 days about a month ago and I called the leave line and my sup and told him I was sick and would not be at work, He wrote me up for that when it was excusedby my doctor, Then I got wrote up again for being two minutes late on a break, he said if I missed one more day in the next 60 days I would get fired. He also stated that nothing was exuseable. If were going to miss we have to call 3 days ahead of time. I said well I can't predict when I wil be sick. Is this legal?

Who cares. If it is that bad, find a better job. Why would you stay at a place like that?

But, in most states you can be fired with or without cause. Being late from a break would be cause though.

Most places have a 3 to 6 month probationary period.
Which allows them to evaluate just how important that job is to you.
Calling in sick during the first 3 months, especially if you do it
repeatedly, is one of the first reasons why an employer will not
keep you on his payroll.

They can and will write you up for being late to work - even if it is only a couple of minutes, etc.

To be honest... it already looks like they are collecting evidence to get rid of you. Basically any violation of their handbook within the next 60 days will most likely get you a pink slip.
Your boss made that already clear when he told you that you will get fired if you call in sick again within the next 2 months.
So what is it going to be? Can you make it for two months being the model employee that never calls in sick or is late and works really hard to show that Boss that you are worth keeping?
Or will you give up right away and quit?

If Missouri is an ''at will'' state, he can fire you for anything. If you're still in a probation period, its possible they can let you go. As a former boss myself, I hated it when new employees call in sick repeatedly. Maybe next time offer to bring in a medical slip to prove you're really sick.

TIP: Never call in sick on a Friday.
