Legal Question in Employment Law in California

I was suspended under investigation from my restaurant for a false accusation by a guest and general manager of adding tip to a credit card. How can I defend myself if I know I did not do it. How can I defend against a lie probably by the guest or even the general manager?

You can't, other than by persuasion of mgmt. Do your best. .

A customer complaint would be 'cause' anyway.
