Unless there is a collective bargaining agreement between local union employees and management or some written contract of employment an employer is not required to give terms of a paid suspension. Similarly, absent anything stated in writing, there is no set time within which one has to respond to a suspension. If the suspension is going to be permanent or for an indefinite period of time you might wish to apply for unemployment compensation benefits.

I?m not sure where you are from and sometimes there are differences in state laws that affect the employer/employee relationship. In Oklahoma, an employer does not have to give an employee the reason(s) he/she was terminated from a job. By terms of a suspension. I am unsure what you mean. The reason for the suspension or the length of it. It also matters how many employees the employer employs. Over a certain number and different federal laws apply.

None of this is governed by any law that I know of. Employer may suspend for no reason, and need give no reason Length of suspensions are up to the employer. There is no requirement to respond to a suspension, and no time to do so. You may file an unemployment compensation claim while you are on suspension. This will force him to give you answers. Yes, you are "unemployed" while suspended without pay. You do not need to be terminated to be unemployed just not working and not earning wages.

Suspensions can be paid or unpaid - the specifics should be listed in the notice of suspension. If there is a response time it also is usually stated in the notice of suspension. Policies and procedures for suspensions, such as how long to respond and other rights, depend upon your employer - for example public employers - city, county, state or federal, and also private employers. A human resource person may be able to answer these questions, as well an an employment attorney - with a little more information.

    This depends on the terms of your employment agreement or union collective bargaining agreement. Otherwise, the employer is free to impose any terms it wants. But surely all such terms should be disclosed to the employee.
