My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I apologize for the delay. I posted an answer earlier and it apparently did not go through.
Unless you have an employment contract
that guarantees that termination
may only be for cause, unfortunately, there is no recourse against the employer in this situation. There is no right to continued employment, which also means that an employer may suspend an employee, with or without pay, for as long as the employer believes it is necessary. They don't have to give written warnings or hearings.
The only exception is if you have any reason to believe that the suspension is based on your status as a member of a protected class, such as race, religion, ethnicity, age, etc. In that case, you would have the ability to file a discrimination
claim with the EEOC
to obtain a right to sue letter. If you have any reason to believe that there is unlawful discrimination involved, then you may want to consider talking to a local attorney. Otherwise, unfortunately, they're allowed to suspend you. Usually, a person who is suspended from work without pay may seek unemployment
. However, if they have any evidence of the things they are claiming, they may be able to defeat your claim.
