NEW YORK (AP) - A former chauffeur for President Donald Trump is suing for thousands of hours' worth of unpaid overtime.

Noel Cintron has sued the Republican president's business, the Trump Organization, Monday in a New York court.

The Trump Organization says Cintron was paid "generously and in accordance with the law."

The suit says Cintron was Trump's driver for 20 years, until the Secret Service took over, and still works for Trump's business.

The suit says Cintron routinely worked 50- to 55-hour weeks without getting overtime but was eligible. It says he makes $75,000 a year, though he gave up his health insurance in exchange for a 2010 raise from $68,000.

The suit claims federal and state labor law violations and seeks six years of unpaid overtime, plus unspecified damages.
