We are thoroughly shocked of your question.

Before answering your case as per Employment Law perspective, we advise that, the acts of your employer is criminal in nature.
If anybody is intimidated or procured for sexual intercourse, it is a criminal offence, which invites harsh punishment.

Intercourse by force, intimidation etc.
2Procurement of woman by threats.
(1) It is an offence for a person to procure a woman, by threats or intimidation, to have F1 . . . sexual intercourse in any part of the world.

In the Employment Law, perspective, the acts of the employer is harassment and bullying.

You have two options.

Lodge a claim before the Employment Tribunal.
Normal course of action as per the Employment Law in escalating the grievances are that, one has to present the grievances before the employer itself.
