This lawsuit is the latest in a string of suits brought against the President and his organisations by former employees and suppliers, all of whom cite common grievances: that Trump wilfully underpaid or failed to pay compensation for services and work completed. Cintron, a registered Republican, worked as Trump's personal driver for more than 25 years, according to Bloomberg.
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.
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".
A Trump Organization spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call for comment on the driver's lawsuit. He said this saved Trump $17,866 in annual health insurance premiums.The case is Cintron v Trump Organization LLC et al, New York State Supreme Court, New York County, No. 653424/2018.
He didn't raise the overtime claim until now because he wasn't fully mindful of his right to it and didn't want to cause trouble at work, said one of his lawyers, Larry Hutcher.
