Sick pay is unregulated. It is a gift from some employers, and the rules are whatever the employer says.
Generally 'laws' do not cover policy regarding employer/employee contact. Some employers require a daily call-in from employees, some require that employees be available for phone consultation when they are off sick. If you feel that your employer's requirements are onerous, you should contact your state employment department for assistance.

is it legal to fire someone who calls out sick for a day
Absolutely not. If you are out sick for a week or more, an employer will usually ask for a doctor's note to prove that you were sick, to keep in your file.

If you're using your disability as a reason/excuse for taking excessive sick leave, it can be somewhat… Read More

How can Dollar tree demote a asst. manager while on sick leave with a doctors note. And not pay the sick leave as well?
An employer does not have to approve an employee's absence or pay the employee for the absence. Sick leave and vacation time are a privilege not a right. If an employee's absenteeism is excessive or considered to disrupt normal business operations, the employer can make necessary adjustments.
