I am in Pennsylvania and my fiancee who is overweight works at a used car dealership. The owner of the dealership keeps telling my fiancee that she has to lose weight or he will fire her. He also singles her out and says things like he is the golden goose and she will address him as such. He says things like she is useless, while she is the hardest worker there. He has also told her to make sure she wears shirts with sleeves because her arms are not fit enough to wear sleevless shirts and "it is rather discusting". He calls her fat all the time. Does this constitute harassment and discrimination, and is there any legal recourse.
