William Shatner is being sued for deliberately “harassing and berating” a former employee, reports TMZ.
The employee’s ‘crime’? According to new legal documents unearthed by TMZ, he refused to sign a waiver after getting injured on the job.
Oscar Alfaro is the man suing Captain Kirk. Alfaro and his wife Delmy filed a lawsuit together in L.A. County Superior court on Wednesday, stating that they worked for Shatner for twenty years. Oscar was a handyman while Delmy worked for the actor as a housekeeper.
When Oscar suffered an injury at the 81-year-old actor’s Studio City home, Shatner asked him to sign a document releasing him from financial responsibility.
Oscar refused, and the actor allegedly responded by harassing both Oscar and Delmy Alfaro.
As a result of Shatner’s supposed harassment, Oscar and his wife say they were both forced to quit their jobs.
In their lawsuit, the Alfaros claim they suffered humiliation, embarrassment, and mental anguish as well as loss of earnings.
