I just want to know what I can do right now ?
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.Is there discrimination involved or violation of company handbook?
what kind the inf. do you want?
Termination is legal on these grounds, even if mistaken and unreasonable.If the real reason is discriminatory or violates company policy, can consider pursuing settlement discussions and a wrongful termination case.No harm in asking for reconsideration and severance.
I want to know my story is a case to suit my boss? or not? no body can help me? because I said the truth? this is not fair, before the deposition I told the lawer I dont want go, but the lawer said ' no you can't" but now I lost my job, no body can help me, were is the Justice? yesterday I went to the DIR, but Them reject my case, Do you know where can accept my case? Thanks!
From what you mentioned there is basis for demanding reconsideration. I do not see illegal conduct though albeit unreasonable.
When I take deposition, my boss want me change the record, but I don't want to do , then he write a letter to me, he said because my Testimony he lose a lot money, every body know , because this reason he hate me so fire me, this is legal? no law can protection the witness? next time can I reject to deposition because this reason ? hurt me to much?
He cannot retaliate against you for truthful testimony or seek to force you to lie. Such illegal conduct can be basis for a wrongful termination claim.

Thank your answer, but you did't tell me can I suit he? where can accept my case? Thanks again!
If reason is retaliation for not perjuring yourself that is an exception that triggers a wrongful termination case. Good luck.
what is "perjuring"
To make false statement under oath or lie or commit perjury in legal proceedings.
