    Sure if they find out that you are doing something while you are out that you shouldn't be doing. Like working under the table somewhere else or running a home based business. There are a number of things that could lead them to believe that you were truly not sick.

    Probably not, sounds like you would be covered under FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act).

    Your HR should be able to advise you.

    FMLA does not apply to everyone. They can terminate you if they find out you are not really sick. If they do fire you though they can always say it was for another reason.
