William Shatner

Sued for Allegedly

Harassing the Help

9/4/2012 3:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

As the spokesman for Priceline, I thought he would be a better negotiator.

I hope the profanity filter came with the platform and someone wasn't randomly picking past tense profanities. I'm sorry- I am cracking up at S*h*a*t* being blocked. Long day...

You apparently can't write the word s=h= a=t= ner here.


As it suggests the future perfect tense:


Of spit.


It can't be either "spitner" or "spatner".

****ner will probably settle. The employee was right not to sign the waiver in the first place. Who would? There is plenty they COULD say about him.

What??? That's a little extreme, don't ya think? These two people suffered this, that and the other thing after this incident to the point where they have to file a lawsuit? Arguments happen all the time...one party or the other is usually not happy as a result of said argument. That's the reality - deal with it.

Um NO, where do you guys get your info? This idiot claims he worked for Bill for twenty years and then was harrassed after being injured on the job and NOT signing a waiver?
.
You can't be serious, with all his legal hassells he wouldn't have this in writing, ahead of time, why?
.
Now, my next question? You were HURT at his home. Did he cause you undue harm, did he purposely leave something out for you to trip over?
.
ANOTHER WORKER LOOKING FOR A PAYOUT OVER SOMETHING FRIVILOUS. STFU, you and YOUR WIFE.
