I live in CA, my dad lives in IL. Ask dad to come watch grand children while I work. Boss Okyd, then later said he may get fired

Q) I am writing on behalf of my dad. I live in California but he lives in Loves Park, Illinois. I am leaving for work and needed him to come out here to watch his granddaughter while I am gone, he spoke to his boss to see if he would be able to take the time off; his boss said yes. This Monday, three days before he is supposed to get on his flight (tomorrow 10/19/17)his boss tells him that while he understands that my dad has family he needs to come out here and take care of, that he needs to take care of his family too and if my dad comes out here, that he will have to hire someone else and that my dad will not have a job to come back to. If my dad comes out here and this guy actually fires my dad for leaving on a trip that the boss had already approved the time off, isn’t this illegal? Also, would my dad be able to get unemployment if he is fired? My dad is about to not come because he is afraid to lose his job and have no money coming in. I’d truly appreciate any help I can get. I’ve been trying to call but no one is answering the line. This just doesn’t seem right and I’m not sure where to reach out to.
