The answer to your question depends on how severe and frequent the harassing acts are, and why the employer is harassing you.  If it is based on an illegal motive such as your race, religion, etc., then the conduct may be illegal if it is severe and frequent enough.  If it is based more on personality issues or he is just a bad boss, then the harassment must be more extreme to give you a legal claim

You should review your case with a lawyer

Labor and Employment
Labor and employment attorneys can help both employers and workers prevent, address and resolve a variety of issues related to the employer-employee relationship. Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests.
