If you didn't follow company policy, it's legal.

Yes, it is entirely legal for an employer to set a sick pay policy which requires you to call in or show proof of a medical visit to get paid sick pay.
Getting your Daddy to tell him you were sick doesn't qualify.

It sounds like you didn't have the b#lls to call in sick yourself.

Not illegal. Federal and state governments could care less what policies employers make in this regard.
If you are sick then YOU are supposed to call in. This isn't kindergarten when the parent calls in.

depends on what your handbook says, usually things like this are left up to the company to set a policy, but they need to set a policy on things like this, they can not just make things up willy nilly

Obviously not legal.
