in a situation like this, as long as its illegal and the way of firing me is against the company policy, i guess i will sue my boss because that is the only way i could get justice for the irregularities to me. because some superiors are so abusive to their power that they forgot the company policy and act without thinking, so i guess its their punishment when somebody sue them for their wrong decisions. what is your opinion on this?

If the situation is suitable for pressing charges, why not go ahead with it. In the end, you have nothing to lose because the situation needs the law to interfere and the boss have to compensate for your damages.

I definitely will, especially when my boss did an injustice and there are labor laws which will say that it is plain wrong. Suing one's boss may not be as easy as it on the surface looks though. It takes an emotional courage and determination to get past beyond fears of being retaliated against. It takes patience and tenacity in following up the status of your case in the Labor courts. It takes faith, most especially, that everything will be rectified in due time. We cannot let erring bosses get away with messing their employees by the abuse of authority they murk themselves with. They are fooling themselves if they think they can get away with unjustly treating their employees and not be held accountable for it. In many ways, suing one's boss is definitely a way to rectify things back into their must-be-respected order.

I would certainly sue the boss if i know i was not wrong.Its not legal in my country to fire someone even without a cause notice.Atleast he would have to make me known why i was fired.

yes. of course. as long as you are at the right side and you have all the evidence that could prove that you are wronged by the employer.. by all means! i think employers have so much abused their employees though it is not so obvious at workplace.its just about right to be able to do something for yourself and fight for whatever they took from you.
