Can employer tell employee not to come to work tomorrow?

This is the scenario:
Employer is a food company engaged in trading. Tonight the employer is told by his supplier-food manufacturer that it cannot deliver the products because his machines were not working.  These products are to be sold to the market the next day (by the trader). So the Food-trader employer tells his employee, van salesman/delivery man not to come to work the next day since there's no products to deliver the next day.  Is that legal? I'd like to hear on what others have to say.

Yes it is legal. Food-Trader employer exercise a sheer prerogative, there is nothing in the law which prohibits an exertion of a valid management prerogative granted by law. Thus, it is a lawful order which warrants adhesion by it's employees, otherwise you may be held liable for insubordination.
