Unless you are governed by a contract, such as a union contract, the employer can suspend you, even without prior warnings or a fair hearing over the allegations. That is, unless the employer is discriminating against you based upon a protected class (e.g., race, gender, et...), or if the employer is interfering was a statutorily protected right (e.g., FMLA, ADA, etc....). Keep an eye out for those issues. If the employer ultimately ends up terminating you, it might be a good idea to seek out an unemployment compensation attorney to help you obtain unemployment benefits.
