William Shatner

Sued for Allegedly

Harassing the Help

EXCLUSIVE

0904_william_shatner_article_tmzWilliam Shatner purposely "harassed and berated" a former employee ... all because the employee refused to sign a waiver after getting injured on the job -- this according to new legal docs.

Oscar Alfaro and his wife Delmy filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior court today -- claiming they both worked for Shatner for twenty years. He was a handyman. She was a housekeeper.

In the docs, Oscar claims he was injured while working at the actor's Studio City home ... but when Shatner wanted him to sign a document to release him from financial responsibility ... Oscar refused.

Oscar claims that as a result of his refusal ... the actor and his wife retaliated against him by harassing Oscar and his wife to the point where they were both forced to quit their jobs.

Oscar and his wife claim they suffered humiliation, embarrassment, and mental anguish in addition to the loss of earnings.

They're suing for unspecified damages.

I don't have the monies the ****ners do, but I would have wanted a waiver signed also. Everyone is sue happy and in this recession...oh boy. Who knows the rest of the story..maybe Oscar and his wife were hurting financially.

I personally know two different people who had business/personal appearance dealings with William ****ner. They both found him to be an incredibly difficult a-hole! (And they were fans of the guy!) I wonder if Delmy was in charge of washing Bill's bad toupees. (I know, 'bad toupee' is redundant)

Oscar, maybe you could mention to Bill how you saw him drown Nerine in the pool that night. You know, kind of a bargaining chip.

Probably the best movie ****ner ever did was Kingdom of The Spiders. It was robbed of The Best Picture Oscar in 1977. To see Captain Kirk running around covered in tarantulas is worth the price of admission alone.

Another case of celebrity's being pummelled -


And for helping people:


"No good deed goes unpunished."


In five years celebrities'll not hire anyone -


Rake and wash their own clothes.


Exploitation.


Confidentiality-agreements can be gotten around.

Captain Kirk smiffed this one out -


From five planets away.


"Talus-5."


Worker: "Um, I got hurt on YOUR property, sir!"


Which can't be dis-proven or proven -


But which leaves Kirk, Spock and the Crew of the Enterprise - responsible.


You aren't entitled to a life if you're rich and famous.


You're fair game -


Hollywood's turned into Afrika.


Celebs into Elephants.


Prized - and for their Ivory -
