I do not think this is a criminal matter, I would see it as more of a civil court matter. If he lied to your boss so that you would be fired, this could be a case of slander. I don't think it is a crime to lie to someones employer. You may wish to contact a civil attorney in your area, most offer a free or minimal cost consultation to see if you have a case.
