PS also if you are protesting on a sick day that is fraud.
sick days are to be used for being sick not protesting. you can still be fired.
not at all. it is called standard business policy.
if you don't show up for work you get fired.
Do you think not showing up for work or calling in sick is perfectly okay? How is it "management thuggery" to expect your employees to show up for work? Personally, I would probably cut an employee some slack a couple of times, but if he/she made a habit of not showing up to work or calling off, they would need to be let go. Do you disagree?
In a contract, sick days are used for any purpose: some times people have important appointments. So your "fraud" charge is just hyperbole and trying to make some sort of point.
Your version of standard business policy BTW attracts an organizing drive. People don't want to have to put up with management thuggery. People deserve better.
