I am a school teacher at a private school in california. I think I have strep throat and ask to go to the doctor and check. I am exposed to many children every day. I was told if I left to see a doctor or missed any time I would be fired and my children told I just left. Is this legal? I don't have an attendance problem, they just treat people so badly that no one stays around.
