"Cintron says he was required to be on duty for Trump starting at 7 a.m. each day until whenever Trump, his family or business associates no longer required his services. He worked as long as 55 hours per week, but was paid a fixed salary of $62,700 in 2003, $68,000 in 2006, and $75,000 in 2010, according to the complaint.

The wage bump in 2010 came with a catch, Cintron said. He was induced to surrender his health insurance, saving Trump approximately $17,866 per year in premiums, according to the lawsuit."


The raise (subtract healthcare) is below where his salary was in 2003, not including cost of living and aside from the back pay he is owed. 30+
year employee.

And he's only asking for 200 grand. Great idea DiminutiveRocker, do a book deal if he wants to. He sounds kind of private. But don't they buy people's stories too?

maybe they should have an affair?


But really this is maybe just a money grab or a simple disagreement, they happen. But y'all make stuff if it makes you happy.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

From a purely legal standpoint, if this gentleman had a $60,000+ annual salary, it is hard to see how he gets overtime, even after he took the pay cut for health benefits.

Because of the amount involved? $57,134 after taking away the insurance. Or maybe because his salary included overtime no matter what?

IIRC, even $57k is significantly above the minimum salary threshold for exempt employees (even for managers) which IIRC is somewhere between $45k and $50k. Maybe New York law is different, or maybe, as you said, he was contactually entitled to overtime.

Interesting to see how and whether he gets from point A to point B.

Thanks namepeace. Good point, wonder how his attorney will make that work. This says the DOL raised the cutoff to $47,476, twice what it was. NY looks to be the same. I think it's still blocked by the courts from implementing so far.
