Well, considering it is legal to fire someone for no reason at all, or any reason that is not prohibited by anti-discrimination laws or whistle-blower protection laws, then no, I guess it is not illegal to fire someone for actually doing something wrong.
In general, unless an employee is civil service, in a union, or has a written employment contract, they are an 'at will' employee that can be disciplined or terminated any time for any reason, with or without ‘cause’, explanation or notice.
They had actual 'cause', a loss of money attributed to you or suspected.
Unless there is a contract or some type of union agreement that was violated, then NO
