The issue is whether the position elimination is legitimate or just pretext for FMLA retaliation and interference. The statement by the HR person and the harassment may help to show that it is the latter.

Don't quit. The company is required to promptly investigate and take appropriate remedial action. If it fails to do so, its liability will increase.
Sexual harassment claims under the Illinois Human Rights Act apply to companies of all sizes--there is no minimum number of employees requirement. There is also individual liability for the sexual harasser. A Charge of sexual harassment must be filed with the Illinois Department of Human Rights within 180 days of any violation. Time is of the essence to your claim.
