He worked for 35 years — and was never paid a dime.

A father-and-son superintendent team at a Queens building filed a lawsuit seeking $450,000 for six years of back pay after being hit with an eviction notice by their boss, according to court documents.

Luis Polanco was hired by K. Peng Realty Corp. to take care of the 16-unit building at 37-70 62nd St. in Woodside and allowed to live there with his family since 1980. His son, Victor, 34, was hired eight years ago.

After Luis, 74, was fired on March 30, he went to an attorney to file an age discrimination lawsuit, but something else was revealed.
