This is not an easy fix.

Assuming that these two workgroups/domains are on separate LAN IP networks:

IF this is the case (separate networks) then one solution is to connect the printer via USB to a PC on one workgroup/domain, and share the printer from that PC.

The normal ethernet network connection of the printer will connect to the OTHER workgroup/network.

You could do the same thing with a USB-connected external print server. Most printers can accept input from LAN connection and USB at the same time.
