What are an employee's rights regarding PTO and write-ups?

Question Details:

I work for a company that gives PTO that can be used to take days off for any reason if proper advance notice is given. We also have a policy that gives you the right to have 3 excused absences without any consequence. As for unexcused absences, they are supposed to take progressive steps. If an employee calls of work, and presuming that it was not excused, can the employer without informing the employee take 8 hours of PTO from the employee and also give them a write up?
