Today, I and a coworker got bitched out and suspended by our boss after our computers got infected with a weird porn virus. It soon turned out the virus had come from our boss' infected memory stick. Did he apologize? No. Is our suspension still in force? Yes. FML

A lot of workplaces in the US use a at will model for employment. So unless OPs work has a employee handbook that lays out reasons for suspension/termination, or they had you sign some papers that state how they can suspend/fire you, OPs boss might not have to give a reason.

well, any reason except "race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age or disability." Those were the biggies, so they are banned. But the boss can come up with any BS reason or none at all as a cause to fire/suspend/etc. Some states and cities have added sexual orientation and gender identity to it, and some have covered maternity, too...but most places you can fire/suspend/etc. for any reason except the EOC reasons above.
