Salim U. Shaikh's answer Given details being insufficient to render a specific advice, however, the said manager must follow the procedure in accordance with harassment complaint and must afford you a chance to detail the whole facts. Mere complaints without any evidence are not admissible.
Richard Yaskin's answer You may be able to do so, especially if the retail establishment is considered a place of public accommodation, such as a shopping mall. The NJ Division on Civil Rights has a poster which states that victims of sexual harassment are protected:

Joseph D. Allen's answer Make sure to document your encounters with the employer, and save all of the inappropriate/harassing texts (preferably on a separate device from your phone). You should speak with an employment/labor attorney about the facts of your case.
Joseph D. Allen's answer It seems that the neighbor may have invaded your privacy- but this partially depends on whether you had a reasonable expectation of privacy in your back yard. It may be a close call in this situation, as your yard was visible from nearby residences. It is also possible that his actions of wearing the t-shirt was done with the intent to cause you emotional or other harm. This may be a situation where a letter from your attorney would do the trick- or it may be that this guy needs to be sued....
Charles Joseph's answer Employers have a responsibility to prevent sexual harassment. A coworker, a supervisor in another area of the company, or even a non-employee, like a vendor, can be the perpetrator.

Anthony Marvin Avery's answer If it is actually an Order of Protection, then yes, you need a competent attorney immediately. But if it is only a TRO then the Court will want to ensure that you know never to go around the Plaintiff again. I would read the Complaint closely to see if anything else is demanded such as money damages. If uncertain hire an attorney to at least check it out prior to Court.
Kiele Linroth Pace's answer The felony crime of Sexual Performance By A Child applies anyone under 18 years old engaged in sexual conduct. The plain language of the law criminalizes the conduct itself, even if it does not occur as a performance.

If the 17 years old is a student and the 24 year-old is an employee of a primary or secondary school then it is a different felony offense.
Arthur Calderon's answer They you may have a potential claim for contributing to a hostile working environment, negligent hiring/supervision, etc. Your best bet is going to be to consult with an attorney to discuss the facts of your case in more detail.
