As with most instances, it all depends. Having sex with your boss in and of itself does not create a cause of action for sexual harrasment.

Was the relationship voluntary?

Was there an advsere job action as a result of the breakup or report?

Did he complain to HR or your boss about sexual harrasment? If he complained, what occurred?
