Rapper Jay-Z was hit with allegations he failed to pay workers compensation for the staff working at his home. The NY Workers Compensation Board filed the matter in court until it was discovered the Comp Board made a clerical error and the famous recording artist did not actually owe the $18,000 that was alleged to have gone unpaid.
