William Shatner Sued for Allegedly Harassing Former Employees

Mark Sullivan/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- William Shatner is facing a lawsuit from two former employees who allege that the Star Trek actor discriminated and harassed them after one of them refused to sign a waiver after getting injured on the job.

Oscar Alfaro and his wife, Delmy, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court Tuesday, alleging that Shatner, 81, and his wife, Elizabeth, “harassed and berated” them so bad that they had to quit their jobs, according to court documents obtained by ABC News affiliate KABC-TV.

Shatner’s manager and lawyer have not responded to ABC News’ requests for comment.

The Alfaros worked for Shatner for 20 years, but they left their unspecified jobs after Alfaro refused to sign a waiver after sustaining an undisclosed injury at the actor’s Studio City, Calif., home, the lawsuit alleges.

As a result, the Alfaros claim they suffered humiliation, embarrassment and mental anguish in addition to the loss of earnings and benefits, according to the lawsuit. They’re suing for an unspecified amount.

William Shatner on Deep Frying a Turkey

PRNewsFoto/State Farm(LOS ANGELES) -- Is there anything that William Shatner can’t do?

It seems that deep frying turkeys is one of the Star Trek actor’s specialties and he’s gotten together with State Farm Insurance to produce a video entitled “Eat, Fry, Love” which instructs fellow turkey lovers on the safest way to fry the bird for Thanksgiving.

Actually, Shatner demonstrates everything you shouldn’t do, which results in the superstar briefly setting himself on fire.

Not to worry though. Shatner comes out of the experience wiser, if not a little crispier.

He also want fans to find him on twitter, #ShatnerFryersClub, pleading, “I want to know you plan to keep yourself, your family and me safe from turkey fryer fires.”
