Donald Trump's Personal Driver Sues for a Ton of Overtime Pay

Trump’s Personal Driver for 25 Years Sues for Unpaid Overtime Donald Trump's Personal Driver Sues for a Ton of Overtime Pay

Noel Cintron, who was Trump's driver for more than 25 years, sued the Trump Organization for more than 3,000 hours of overtime he said he worked during the past six years. The second raise, he added, came with a caveat: Cintron alleged he was forced to surrender his health benefits, "saving Trump approximately $17,866.08 per year in health insurance premiums".

Last year, one of Trump's luxury golf resorts in Florida was ordered by an appeals court to pay more than $32,000 to a supply company that claimed it wasn't paid for paint that was used to spruce up the property.

US President Donald Trump's ex personal chauffeur yesterday sued the Trump Organization for years of unpaid overtime, claiming he was exploited and denied a meaningful raise for more than a decade.

Donald Trump was not named as a defendant.

Noel Cintron, who served as the NY businessman's driver until Trump received Secret Service protection in 2016, is demanding the recovery of compensation from his time working for the Trump Organization in a lawsuit filed Monday with the Supreme Court of NY.

Lawyers for the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The plaintiff generally worked five days a week from 7am to whenever he was no longer needed, on average 50-55 hours a week, according to the suit.

The suit, filed by Noel Cintron in Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday, seeks $178,200 for overtime pay and $5,000 in penalties in accordance with New York's labor laws.

The lawsuit also alleges that Cintron has not received a raise since 2010, when his salary was raised from $68,000 to $75,000.

Cintron's lawsuit is a little pricier than that, seeking some USD$200,000 in damages not only for the withheld backpay, but also for the allegation that the Trump Organisation failed to provide him with annual wage notices, which is required by NY state law.

Larry Hutcher, a lawyer for Cintron, said his client had not sued sooner because he had been unaware of his rights, and that it was "regrettable" a lawsuit became necessary. Cintron is seeking about $200,000 in damages, Hutcher said.
