    With his wife Beyoncé due to give birth shortly, Jay-Z is dealing with another legal headache. Instead of a battle over the clearance rights to a song sample, the Hova is dealing with his domestic employees accusing him of failing to pay insurance premiums.

    Executives at the Workers Compensation Board of New York have filed suit against the rap mogul due to a series of claims that he failed to pay premiums for his employees, which include drivers, maids and cooks at his home, for three months during 2009. Oops!

    A court has ordered Jay-Z to pay $18,000 in fines to for the lapse, according to TMZ.

    Ouch.

    Would you want to be in Jay-Z's employ if given the chance?
