Sara Netanyahu rejected claims of poor treatment by a former employee while testifying at the Jerusalem Labor Court on Thursday.

"The atmosphere at the [prime minister's] residence is very good. It's all a bag of lies. My work relations are excellent. I treat the employees in a pleasant and cultured way," the prime minister's wife said.

Netanyahu is being sued by former employee Guy Eliyahu for poor treatment. Eliyahu has claimed that while working at the residence, the prime minister's wife abused him, and is demanding NIS 500,000 in compensation.

The prime minister's wife also referred to former employee Meni Naftali, who is suing the Netanyahu family for labor-law violations.

"Since Meni left, the relations at the Prime Minister's Residence have improved and the shouting is gone," she said. "The serious thing is that a crooked and wretched man is sullying my name. My character is being butchered."
