Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.
In your state, and nearly every other state in the country, employment is "at will." That means that you can legally be terminated or suspended at any time, with or without warnings, write-ups or even a cause.
The only way around that is if you have an employment contract that expressly outlines the circumstances under which you can be suspended, and then you'd be able to sue for breach of contract if they didn't abide by it. However, in the absence of a contract, the employer can legally suspend, without warning, based on the facts you've outlined here.
