How long may a private company keep an employee on suspension

Resolved Question:

How long may a private company keep an employee on suspension? Could it be forever. Mine does not want to fire me with a disability just keep me on suspension.

There is no set time established. At some point it becomes what is known as a "constructive termination" but there is no set definition of when that occurs in every case. It is case and fact specific.

However, you were right to file the complaint with the EEOC (you also need to file with your state Commission on Human Rights) since the suspension was an act of discrimination.
