disiplined for calling in or going home sick

Hello -

Can anyone tell me if it is illegal in the state of missouri to be punished for calling in or going home sick? My employer told me that i have 10 sick days to use, but if I use one of them I will be written up on each incident. They told me that those 10 sick days are part of my benefits package . How can being written up a benefit? Thats like being written up for cashing my paycheck! or going on vacation ! We had one lady that had gotten ill at work and passed out , but she refused medical treatment from the paramedics in fear of getting in trouble . This is not right that someone should have to put their job before their health. Thank you

Thanks JW
