Today, 4/8/2020, my son received a W-2 from a company that he worked there for three days. Those three days he was in training and did not receive any money. The W-2 that he received today shows wages, tips other compensation in the amount of $6377.76. No Federal income tax was withheld. The W-2 shows State wages of $228.06. My son was only at this employer for three days because he had to go into rehabilitation and he has not worked since then. What do I have to do to get this W-2 corrected?
You should start with the employer. Next, if necessary, contact the IRS: 1-800-829-1040 hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
You may want to contact a Taxpayer Advocate in your area. See this IRS website for Taxpayer Advocate in your area and a toll free number - http://www.irs.gov/Advocate/Local-Taxpayer-Advocate

I would start by asking the employer that issued the W-2 where the $6,377 is since your son never received it. If he is due the money as the W-2 reports, and never received it, then report it to your state labor dept if the employer neither produces the money or admits and corrects a mistake.
