Legal Question in Employment Law in California

I was fired by my employer for violation of policy, but I did not violate the policy yet they said, due to a text message received from another employee the employer call that intended to violate of policy. What should I do, since I truly believe that was a miscommunication in the text. They employer never pulled me in to verify nor did they show me the prove when I asked to clear any misunderstanding. Please advise.

Advice: look for new employment.

Not only are there no laws against poor management, 'unfair treatment', or rude, obnoxious or harassing behavior by management or other employees, but 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.
