Is an employer breaking the law?

Coventry Health Care hired me full time. I worked there then received notification from my Neurologist that I can no longer drive the 30 miles to work due to seizures. I went into work early the next day and had my mom wait outside in the car while I cleaned out my desk. Only a few people were there but I sent out an email stating my situation to 2 supervisors and Human Resources, none of who were in. I printed out copies of the sent email and left. Email stated I had lost my license and had no transportation to work (I had NONE.) The next day the supervisor called me and said I walked out of the job, never sent emails and was under a category of "job abandonment" never eligible for rehire. I mailed the email into human resources showing that it was marked SENT: to all three persons at 8:01AM. No call back, no nothing. Now I can't get a new job because they're saying I walked out. How do I fight this? Thanks Was I supposed to let mom wait out in the car for 3 hours? Thats the earliest a supervisor gets in.

You may want to get an opinion from your state's labor board.

You are talking about internal policy, not about law. Their internal policy is that they don't want you back because of the way you quit. Sending an email and then packing up your desk is no way to quit and you would be on my do-not-hire list as well.
