Are there surveillance cameras that captured all of this?
Well, then, you should calmly listen to what they have to say. If what they say does not mesh with what you recalled happening, then you should ask if it would be possible for loss prevention to play back the related cameras for all of you to see. Once the footage has been played back, then take the discussion from there. That way, hopefully, everyone is working from the same page.
Good luck and best wishes! I hope that you find this information to be helpful!
understand but if they don't and they fired me, do I have a recourse
If you have an employment agreement or handbook which says that you are an at-will employee or that your employment is at-will, then, no, you would not have any recourse.
This is because, as an at-will employee, you can quit at any time, and your employer can terminate at any time. It doesn't matter the reason or whether it's true or not. When one is "at will," they serve at the pleasure of the other.
Hope this helps!
