Ex worker sues boss from hell who 'urinated on his clothing'Aug 12, 1:49 pm
New York, August 12 (ANI): A brash real estate broker has been accused of unzipping more than just his lips to torture his young assistant.Jack Terzi urinated on the underling's clothes during a three-year reign of terror in their Manhattan office, according to a astonishing new lawsuit.The allegedly abusive broker was accused by ex-employee Albert Sultan of abuse that included cutting four-letter insults, sharp flying objects and bizarre fines.Sultan, hired shortly after Terzi launched his company in 2009, "became emotionally distraught, was humiliated and embarrassed ... by the systematic and continuous unlawful harassment," charged the 15-page suit filed on Wednesday.Court papers contain a cruel recital of Terzi's perverse management style, including the time he "urinated on a garment" belonging to Sultan as others watched.Terzi was accused of throwing a shoe and a pair of scissors at his young assistant, hurling insults like "f------ idiot" and "piece of s---" - and repeatedly "sneezing in (Sultan's) face in a contemptuous fashion."In a countersuit, Terzi charged Sultan was a conniving backstabber who launched his own business with confidential information stolen from Jack Terzi Real Estate.Sultan, of Eatontown, N.J., declined further discussion about his ex-boss."It's not the right time for me to talk about any of the case," the New York Daily news quoted Sultan as saying,"I'm going to settle with him," he said.However, a Terzi attorney insisted in a statement that the entrepreneur was being targeted by a bitter former employee."In an attempt to distract the court from his wrongdoing, Mr. Sultan has responded with a baseless and personal attack on Mr. Terzi," an attorney at the firm of Sills Cummis and Gross said."The allegations are unfounded and untrue," the sttorney added.According to the Manhattan Supreme Court Lawsuit, Terzi ran his six-person outfit like a sweat shop - particularly when dealing with Sultan.In his first industry job out of college, Sultan's gofer chores included parking Terzi's car and fetching his coffee. And then there were the more distasteful duties.Sultan claims that he was forced to work a 60-hour week, plus 26 Sundays annually, with no sick days or vacation.And, the plaintiff charges, he was stiffed for six months pay and commissions worth 129,320 dollars. Sultan is seeking more than 5-million-dollar in damages along with the unpaid money.Terzi also instituted an unforgiving series of fines for office transgressions - 15 dollars a minute for arriving late, 30 dollars a minute for leaving early, 1,000 dollars for missing a full Sunday shift.Sultan resigned from the company on June 12, but only after using his last weeks "actively soliciting JTRE clients, prospects, locations and deals," Terzi charged.
