Donald Trump’s Chauffeur Is Suing Him for 3,300 Hours of Unpaid Overtime

Donald Trump’s Chauffeur Is Suing Him for 3,300 Hours of Unpaid Overtime

Noel Cintron, who worked as Trump's driver for more than 25 years, said he was owed 3,300 hours of uncompensated overtime from his last six years on the job.

Trump's former personal driver of 25 years is suing Trump for 3,300 hours of unpaid overtime.

Not only does Cintron claim that Trump failed to pay him for his well-deserved overtime, but he also refused to give him a "meaningful raise" in over 10 years.

In a statement to Business Insider, a Trump Organization spokesperson said that the lawsuit was frivolous, as Mr. Cintron was always paid "generously and in accordance with the law".

In December 2010, he was given a $7,000 raise to $75,000 a year, but only after losing his health benefits, saving his employer almost $18,000 a year in insurance premiums, according to the lawsuit.

A NY man who said he was Donald Trump's personal driver for more than 20 years sued the USA president's company on Monday, claiming he was not paid for thousands of hours of overtime.

Cintron said he worked as a driver for Trump, his family members and his businesses for more than a quarter century, averaging 50 to 55 hours weekly.

"In an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement and without even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige President Donald Trump has ... exploited and denied significant wages to his own longstanding personal driver", ex-chauffeur Noel Cintron says in a new Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit. He said this saved Trump $17,866 in annual health insurance premiums. "Once the facts come out we expect to be fully vindicated in court".

Cintron's lawyers said he is owed roughly $350,000.

The allegations mirror numerous other claims made by contractors and workers for Trump's companies, who have frequently gone to court over claims of unpaid wages or fees.

A Trump Organization spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call for comment on the driver's lawsuit.

In addition to the unpaid overtime, Cintron claims the Trump Organization failed to provide annual wage notices as required by NY law.
