The answer depends on what you mean by "punished." If the employer fired you, denied you a promotion, demoted you, or subjected you to an unfavorable transfer or something else of that nature, that would very likely be illegal under both Wisconsin and federal law. If, however, the employer merely refused to pay you for the time off, this is perfectly legal under both sets of law.
