Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you. Please just give me a moment to review your question....
I am truly sorry you are in this situation. In general, there is little an employee can do when faced with this sort of adverse employmnt action. This is so because of the general rule that employment in the state of CA is "at will" absent an express agreement to the contrary. At will employment can be terminated (and by extension suspended) for any reason not amounting to discrimination on the basis of a legally protected trait (race, religion, gender, etc.) or retaliation for engaging in certain forms of legally protected conduct (filing a wage claim, taking FMLA leave, etc.). It doesn't matter whether the basis for termination is fair, reasonable or even true.
Thus, your only remedies for an improper or unfair suspension exist on a personal level. This entails explaining your side of the story and attempting to reason with your employer. It sounds like you have already given your explanation for the charting issue. You can reiterate your explanation in writing, along with an apology for any deviation from protocol, but beyond this there is nothing more you can do aside from wait out the suspension.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
