This is not as simple a question as it sounds. If you were falsely accused of theft and fired, you might have a claim for wrongful termination. You might then be able to get your job back or compensation. The question is whether the employer acted improperly in firing you, which depends on what the employer knew and how it acted. You are not automatically entitled to your job back.
