Elements of a sexual harassment lawsuit

I need help and any references/citations are appreciated. Thanks.

Sally works as a welder at Heavy Iron Works Company. She is the only female welder in a shop with ten male welders. Teddy is the manager of that shop with Sally and the ten male welders. Sally is continually the subject of comments by many of the male welders in the shop, and many of those welders tell racy jokes so that Sally can hear. Sally has told the male welders in the shop that their comments and actions make her uncomfortable, but the only response that she has gotten from the male welders is that if she does not like it, she should leave.

Sally wants to file a sexual harassment claim against her employer. Are there any further actions that she should take before filing that claim that would help her situation or make her case stronger? Is Heavy Iron Works Company going to be liable for the actions of the male welders? What factors will be considered in determining whether there is sexual harassment and/or a hostile work environment?

Your response should be a minimum of 200 words in length.
