What is the compensation on average for sexual harassment?

I worked for a company that is gender biased. A store manager has made sexual lewd comments about my to his coworkers while on the clock. I told my district manager about the incident and nothing was filed with Human Resources and no actions were taken. When I asked the district manager for a follow up he fired me.

There is no "on average" compenation, since it varies with how much you were making (since losing the job and income thereof is part of the "damage" you experienced) and by type, frequency, etc. of the harassment. Every case depends on its own unique facts; consult with an employment law attorney (one who handles harassment cases) to see what your particular case might be worth.
