What can I do if I was sexually harassed at work?

I was sexually touched and harassed at work yesterday while my boss stood by and laughed at me. This was all recorded on the companies surveillance cameras. I went into work today and my manager said I was being fired. He told me there was no reason for me being fired, but that I needed to leave. I contacted HR about the incident, but want to know what I can do beyond that, legally. What are my options as I feel this is highly unfair.
