Indian-American CEO forced her sick worker to sleep beside dogs
WASHINGTON: Indian-American Himanshu Bhatia, CEO of Rose Internationals and IT Staffings, has been charged with an allegation of insensitive treatment of a domestic help who went to US from India to work for her.
The Department of Labor, in their complaint alleges that Himanshu Bhatia had extracted work from the domestic help for more than 15 hours a day, seven days a week paying USD 400 a month plus housing and food at her home in San Juan Capistrano and other luxury residences in Miami city, Las Vegas and Long Beach, California.
The domestic worker Sheela Ningwal was forced to sleep in the garbage on a carpet alongside dogs when she was ill, and she was left without food when Bhatia was away for days from her residence, according to the reports.
The complaint alleges that Bhatia had restricted her free movement through impounding her passport. Earlier in December 2014, Bhatia had terminated Ningwal after catching her researching online about the topics on ‘labor laws’ and after the domestic service worker had refused to sign a document which stated that she was being paid an adequate amount of salary and had no employment disputes with Bhatia.
Bhatia’s firm had more than USD 357 million in revenue in the year 2011.
