Can my employer suspend me without notice

Work has been slow lately, I wasnt
scheduled as I usually am this
weekend. I sent a text this morning to
let them know I was going to walk in
which is a thing here with hopes to
pick up a shift and the response I got
was I cant use you, youve been
suspended. No one ever contacted me
in any way and I havent the slightest
clue what I couldve done.

Unless this action violated the terms of an employment contract or union agreement it is legal. The fact is that most work relationshops are "at will" which means that a company can st the conditions of employment much as it sees fit (absent some form of legally actionable discrimination). Accordingly, you could have been suspended (or even terminated) for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice.
