What to do if a co-worker over heard a manager say, that I had rang people at the cash register with a fake credit card which is completely false?

So now that employee told other people so now everybody thinks that I’m a thief . I had never been spoken to about this never proved that I did that. And at work now I feel really uncomfortable there I have been employed there for over 3 years and I feel awkward now at work.

I suggets that you clear the air my having a meeting with your manager as well as human resources over what was allegedly said about you. In the meeting air your concerns and state your innocence. Follow up with the meeting with an e mail memorializing what was discussed. Keep a copy of the e mail for future use and need.
