I am working for this company and just started in November. I have doctors appointments that were premade and they will not allow me to go to them and if i do i get written up. You are not allowed to take breaks during the day, not allowed to call off if you are sick without getting in trouble. If you child is sick you are not allowed to take off to be with them or go get them from school even if you have no one else to get them or watch them. You are only given 3 sick days for the whole year no time off for personal time. The sick days have to be for you and not anyone else in the family. I had a fever today and had to call off i went to the doctor and got a doctor note but still got in trouble. I also had doctors appointments which i went to on my lunch at work and came back to work but got in trouble for going to those as well. Can an employer do this to you.. There are other situations at this job that i would also like to talk about. i do not think that they way that they conduct their business is fair and do not think that they treat their employees fair. how to go about doing something about this and finding a new job

You're obviously working for an employer who doesn't know how to treat their employees. You should immediately start trying to finding another position elsewhere. Places like this need to be driven out of business. I suggest writing reviews to warn off other potential employees on sites like glassdoor and even yelp and the like to warn off customers.
You can also continue to go to work and collect your paycheck without much fear in the short term because you really have nothing to lose. If they do fire you then you may have a case for wrongful termination depending on the state and local laws where you live (I am not a Lawyer). There's no point worrying about the write-ups since you'll have a new job soon anyway. Keep doing as good of a job as you can under the circumstances until you are able to get that new job - it's always best to leave with a clear conscience and there may be other employees that you work with in the future. Two weeks notice is a luxury that a company like this doesn't deserve (assuming you work in an at-will employment state), you can let them know in writing the day you start the new job.
As much as you may desire to seek revenge, leaving and other civil means of running them out of business are the best, safest, and most professional. I'm hoping Dan's comment about ipecac is an attempt at humor. You need to leave with your integrity intact and your head held high.
