Usually the answer is no if he has sick and vacation days that would cover his illness. But, it may all depend on the employers policies. I must, however, caution you that this may be a pretext and/or creating a history for future termination. Be careful . . . consult with an employment law attorney. It is cheaper to pay the consultation fee now than to make a mistake where you suffer financial harm.
