Hi, Tina, Thank you for your kind patience,
I am sorry you are having this difficulty at your workplace and it definitely should not be happening. You are the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace.
Sexual harassment can take many forms and it can be verbal or physical. It can be unwelcome sexual advances, unwelcome touching, or any type of conduct that explicitly or implicitly affects an employee's work performance, or creates an intimidating or offensive work environment. Your employer should not be smacking you on your buttocks, or making any type of sexual comments to you. You should file a formal Complaint or "charge" with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"). I have listed two regional offices below. An employer cannot retaliate against any employee who files a formal Complaint with the EEOC because if an employer takes any type of retaliatory action, the employer will have to pay some pretty high fines and penalties
