Baxter took exception to several of the decisions referee Daniel Bennett made on Sunday afternoon - including putting his hands over his eyes to mimic glasses after his side were denied what he felt was a clear penalty.
Eventually Bennett had enough and red carded the Chiefs boss.
As with all red cards, Baxter will now serve a mandatory two-match suspension and he will be forced to watch the fixtures against AmaZulu and University of Pretoria from the stands.
The Englishman's assistant coach Doctor Khumalo is expected to take over pitch side and issue Baxter's instructions to the players.
For his own part, Baxter has taken responsibility for his actions, admitting he was ashamed of his actions and that they came as a result of him being embarrassed of the result of the game.
The Amakhosi have a comfortable lead at the top of the Premiership standings, eight points ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns in second.
However, 'Downs do have a game in hand and Chiefs have been struggling for form since the turn of the year.
Not having their coach pitch side for the next two games will be a significant distraction to Chiefs and Sundowns will be hoping they can use the disruption to further close the gap at the top of the league.
