Can an employee require you to bring in a doctors note for missing one day of work?

San Diego, CA |

For missing one day of work my employer said that he wanted a doctors note. He said that it is his disgression to do this. I also know that other employees have called out sick and this has not been a requirement. Is this legal?

Yes, this is legal. Much may have to do with your prior history of absences.
