In the example right above this, they failed to show up for work that day and were fired.

I interpreted that example as “they said they were planning on missing work to protest” vs. not saying anything at all. Because jobs do give people days off if they ask in advance, even “personal days” to use as they please—though we don’t know if that was the case here.
