NextImg:Libbie Mugrabi failed to pay workers minimum wage: lawsuit

First she was accused of brawling with her maid, now embattled socialite Libbie Mugrabi is alleged to have stiffed two other workers of their pay.

Mugrabi, 43 — who made headlines with her split from billionaire art collector David Mugrabi — is on the hook for nearly $60,000 in unpaid wages, penalties and interest owed to two former employees and the state, according to court papers.

She failed to pay minimum wage to a domestic worker in 2019 and an assistant in 2022, the state Labor Department contends.

She owes $17,912 in unpaid wages, and another $17,912 in damages, along with nearly $3,200 in interest and $19,912 in civil penalties, the state said in its Manhattan Supreme Court filing.

Mugrabi, who recently claimed her former husband tried to hire a hitman to take her out, doesn’t have the best track record with her workers.

Housekeeper Janneth Gonzalez Duarte, who is not listed in the Labor Department paperwork, sued Mugrabi in Manhattan Supreme Court, accusing her of “violently attacking” her at Mugrabi’s Water Mill home in July 2022.

Mugrabi allegedly broke her ex-employee’s cellphone, and threatened her with a knife and mop handle. She later claimed she was the victim, telling The Post her hired help took over her home while she was away and stole her designer shoes.

“They weren’t doing any work. They were glampin’ in the Hamptons,” she claimed.

Mugrabi’s 2020 split from her hubby was called NYC high society’s “nastiest divorce.”
