Can I sue my supervisor at work for physical and verbal harrassment?

I have been being harrassed by my supervisor pretty much ever since I started working at the job I’m at right now. The other day I had to press charges against him because of the fact that he hawked up flem out of his throat and coughed it at my face and the flem hit me in the face 3 times. I asked him 2 times to stop and after the 3rd time I kind of snapped; he told me that if I didn’t like it then I could leave. I want to know how I can go about handling this?
