SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (AP) - The founder of an IT company has been accused of forcing a housekeeper to sleep in the garage with her dogs, work 15-hour days and sometimes go without food.

The Orange County Register (https://bit.ly/2caW1LO ) says the U.S. Labor Department filed a complaint late last month against Himanshu Bhatia.

It alleges that Bhatia paid a woman from India $400 a month to do housework seven days a week at homes in San Juan Capistrano, Long Beach, Las Vegas and Miami.

Bhatia allegedly fired the woman after discovering she was researching labor laws on a computer.

Bhatia and her husband co-founded Rose International, which provides IT staffing and services. It has 6,000 employees nationwide.

A call to Bhatia at the company seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned Thursday.
