A former worker in the city public advocate’s office is accusing her ex-boss of drugging and sexually assaulting her during a holiday party — and says the watchdog agency swept it under the rug.

Angel DuBose, 47, says in a complaint filed with the state Division of Human Rights that Public Advocate Letitia James’ chief of staff, Ibrahim Khan, attacked her in 2014. :rolleyes:

Khan allegedly made suggestive comments to the Queens mom of two at the December gig at Woodrow’s in Tribeca and then got her a drink, the papers say. DuBose told The Post she went outside to smoke, and the next thing she knew, she woke up in the middle of the street, the papers state.

DuBose claims in the papers that Khan drugged and sexually assaulted her. She told The Post she eventually recalled details.

She says in the papers that she reported the incident to an office supervisor Jan. 15, 2015, but nothing was done.

James’s office said DuBose was fired “for cause” and called all of her allegations “ an outright lie.’’

“There is absolutely no truth to these allegations,” Spokeswoman Anna Bower said. “They are an outright lie. When these allegations were raised, we referred to them to the Department of Investigation, which reviewed and closed this matter. Additionally, the Manhattan DA’s office investigated this matter and closed it. We are disappointed that a former employee would go through such great lengths to disparage the Public Advocate’s Office and our team.”

DuBose reported the alleged assault to the NYPD and Manhattan DA’s Office in March of this year, police sources told The Post.

Khan’s lawyer e-mailed a letter to The Post from the DA’s office dated Monday that said an investigation had been conducted and, “No charges will be filed against Mr. Khan.’’

The NYPD still has an open investigation, a cop source said.

DuBose said she was demoted and finally fired three weeks ago because of the allegations.
