West Chester, PA asked in Employment Law for Delaware

Q: Fired for theft I didn't commit, what's my next step? Can I sue?

I was recently fired for money missing. The first time it happened I caught 40.00 missing from the register before doing the deposit, the problem with this is that every employee on the clock can get into the drawr. The second time I counted a deposit and gave it to another manager to check. This manager bagged and dropped off the deposit after recounting it, but the next day the bank called and said it was 100.00 short. I was fired because the two incidence happened on my sifts, however there is no control over how many employees are in a register in a single day, and in the second incident I counted the right amount and gave it to a second manager who also counted it, and agreed it was the correct amount, he then bagged th deposit and took it to the bank. The company can't prove it was ever me but assumed because it happened on shifts I worked. However, I didn't take it. I'm an outstanding employee who has received 2 promotiono in 6 months, why would I ruin a job I loved.
