Legal Question in Employment Law in Georgia

I was wrongfully terminated for a cashier being short in her cash drop when i followed the procedures like i was suppose to. the cashiers are allowed to do their own pick up without a manager being present so can i be held accountable for something she chose to do when the manager only touchs their register at the end of the night to add up the money to do the deposit as well the manager having about 7 or 8 write up for me to sign with no verbal warning or a coaching form being signed notifying that i have been addressed with the issue
