SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (AP) - The daughter of an IT company executive says allegations that her mother forced a housekeeper to work 15-hour days and sleep with dogs is “complete fiction.”

Sabina Bhatia released a statement Friday.

The U.S. Labor Department filed a complaint last month against her mother, Himanshu Bhatia of San Juan Capistrano.

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. The complaint says the woman slept in a garage with family dogs when she was sick.

But Bhatia’s daughter says the woman was treated like family and her allegations are false.

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