Workplace Harassment: I got harassed at my fast food job…

I got harassed at my fast food job for about 4 months. There was an older man who was hired and made odd sexist, and sexual jokes towards the women and younger boys at work and unfortunately had a special interest in me. He gave me odd nicknames like “smiley”, would say we were going out on dates and telling his guy friends at work about me. Things got scary when he threatened to spank me and made the same threats to the younger guys, and then he crossed the line while on shift he put his hands on my waist from behind and whispered in my ear something along the line of “our little secret, smiley”. I was so uncomfortable I was changing shifts and it was affecting how safe I felt at work. I gave a statement to the management and he was luckily fired but what was so upsetting was they told him if he apologized for what he did he would be allowed to stay. Luckily he chose not to and was let go but unluckily he is still a regular at the restaurant and shows up.
