Where I worked (I'm retired now), failing to show up to work for 3 days in a row without notifying them meant you were fired. I think that this is pretty normal; employers can't keep paying people who simply stop coming to work.

The issue wasn't salary, it was disqualifying survivor's benefits and retirement funds for someone who disappeared while on work premises, perhaps due to something beyond their control.
