Thank you for the information. Is the manager that said okay your direct supervisor? What about the manager that fired you? What is his relationship with you? Have you spoken to the manager that said it was okay as long as you had a doctor's note?

Thank you for the information. If your direct supervisor says it is okay, but his boss has now overridden him, then you need to appeal your termination with your Human Resources Department. Your direct supervisor's permission should be sufficient especially when you have a doctor's note covering those days. Your termination under the circumstances will not be proper.
