    Can I get fired for being sent home for being sick, instead I went to the emergency
    I was working for a temporary service and they found me job at panasonic, Friday they sent me home because I was feeling sick. Instead of going home I went to the emergency. I had an emergency surgery for my gall bladder removed. I called the temp service advise them of my situation and they contacted Panasonic. I called them today to advise them the doctor has not released me and that I have a doctors appointment on Thursday. Kelly services called me back and advised me that Panasonic had to release me. Before I left Friday I asked them if I could come back on Monday they told me that I could come back to work once the doctor released me. Now Panasonic has terminated me. I didn't have any write ups.

    Yes, you have no contract, and also was working for a company though a temp or contract agency. They can stop your work ( or fire you) at anytime for any or no reason.
