I reviewed your facts. I think it is worthy of an appeal. The burden of proof is on the employer. From facts mentioned it is not cleat at all that the reason is legitimate or for cause. You can prevail on appeal pointing to their decision being arbitrary, not based on misconduct, inconsistent statements, motive, or any other inconsistencies or lack of proof as well as reference to years of good service and lack of termination of anyone else for such reasons at the company.
