Coersion?? & Suspension without pay

I would like to know if it is legal for a supervisor to demand that an employee write a resignation letter but not accept what is written amd being forced to stay at work to write it.
Is it legal to be suspended without pay for being falsely accused of something that I did not do?

general question

As long as the employer pays you for the time you took to write the letter, it does not seem a violation to require you to rewrite it.
As far as being suspended withut pay for being falsely accused, the question is too complicated to answer without further information. Indiana is at will state so generally an employee can be suspended without pay, regardless of whether the allegations were true or not. However, there are numerous exceptions to both this and your first question based on whether there is some violation of another law occurring. Possible violatins are retaliation, discrimination, medical leave act, workers comp, etc. More information needs to be given before any reasonable answer can be given.
