Washington: Canadian actor William Shatner is facing a lawsuit from two of his former employees for allegedly discriminating and harassing them after one of them refused to sign a waiver after getting injured on the job.

Oscar Alfaro and his wife, Delmy, have filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday, claiming that the 81-year-old actor, and his wife, Elizabeth, “harassed and berated” them so bad that they had to quit their jobs, ABC News reported.

The Alfaro’s have worked for the ‘Star Trek’ actor for 20 years, but left their unspecified jobs after Oscar refused to sign a waiver after sustaining an undisclosed injury at the actor’s Studio City, California home.

As a result, the Alfaro’s claimed that they suffered humiliation, embarrassment and mental anguish in addition to their loss of earnings and benefits. The couple is suing for an unspecified amount.
