What are the penalties for not showing up for a deposition in a civil lawsuit?

Question Details:

My company has filed suit against an ex-salesman over non-compete issues and a countersuit for unpaid commissions. I am a friend of the salesman and still work for the company but my deposition would hurt both sides. What happens if I just don't show up for the deposition since I'm just a witness?
