Can my employer take me off the schedule and tell me not to return because I am pregnant and got a doctor's note ordering me to be put on light duty?

Question Details:

My employer called me and told me I don't need to come in to work because of some possible issues with me being on light duty at work. Is this legal? Can they just boot me off the schedule?
