双语 中文 英文
President Donald Trump’s longtime personal driver Noel Cintron on Monday accused the Trump Organization of not paying him for "thousands of hours of overtime" to which he was legally entitled during his more than two decades of service.
The suit says Cintron worked an average of 50 to 55 hours per week for Trump for more than 25 years.
During that time, the suit alleges, Cintron received a base salary but was never paid — as legally required — overtime pay.
Cintron’s suit, which names only the Trump Organization and Trump Tower Commercial LLC as defendants, also said "President Trump’s further callousness and cupidity is further demonstrated by the fact that while he is purportedly a billionaire, he has not given his personal driver a meaningful raise in over 12 years."
And it says Trump failed to reimburse Cintron for "accrued vacation time, accrued sick days, and his expenses while performing his job duties."
The suit says that under the law, due to the statute of limitations, Cintron can only make a claim for unpaid overtime for the past six years.
The complaint says he worked about 550 hours of uncompensated overtime per year for those six years, totaling about 3,330 hours of overtime. At Cintron’s current pay rate, that would mean he would be owed $178,487 in back pay. In addition to back overtime with interest, Cintron’s suit is asking for almost $40,000 in statutory penalties.
The White House had no immediate comment.
