Wrong dates entered on termination letter (said I did not show up for a day that has not occurred yet) and I was under medical care with doctors notes

More details to this question:
Letter stating I did not show up for 3 consecutive days and one of the days has not even occurred yet. I had dr notes saying I was not allowed to be at work for the other 2 days they are claiming. This has happened after I had to be interviewed for an investigation of a woman falling asleep in my department while on the clock and she complained to HR that I was receiving preferential treatment from the boss of the department because I am always out of work (all documented with medical notes). Letter was sent to me via certified mail and my boss did not even know that HR had done this. HR told her she was supposed to talk with me about being placed on a performance improvement plan on my next day back to work on Tuesday the 12th.

I would strongly encourage you to contact my office to discuss your termination further. Depending on the length of your employment, you may be eligible for FMLA-protected medical leave and disciplining you would violate the FMLA. In addition, you may potentially have a claim under the ADA depending on the condition which caused your need for leave. Time off can be a reasonable accommodation. We handle cases like this regularly. Feel free to contact my office for a FREE consultation.
