Lebanon, PA asked in Employment Law, Sexual Harassment and Civil Rights for Pennsylvania

Q: I was fired yesterday after filing a second complaint about the same customer sexual assaulting me in the restaurant.

The restaurant has no handbook or ethics. Not even a system to file complaints. The customer is an investor and has ties with the hemp distributor ( it was a brewery). The first time in mid October the customer caressed me and I became deeply uncomfortable. As soon as I could get away I went to my manager which he then told me I could switch serving tables with another employee. Letting the man sit undisturbed for the rest of the time. I was retaliated against for speaking up about his inappropriate behavior.
