Over the years, Lowe’s Home Improvement has advanced in productivity and quality. They provide clear quality guidelines to insure product quality, safety, and social responsibility. They are the second largest home improvement retailer in the world and serve more than 14 million customers each week. Violation of the policy can result in disciplinary action up to termination,” Ahearn said, adding that she couldn’t say if that was the sole reason given for Smith’s dismissal by former Kerrville Lowe’s manager Richard LeMoine.
The decreased demand for home improvement products in the weak housing market will adversely affect the company’s sales. Lowe’s sales will be negatively impacted if the economic trend continues, as it has been forecast to do. Renewed financial stress and continued high unemployment will most certainly affect sales for the company.
The main advantage to a low-voltage screen (Zmesh) system is the extremely low profile of the heating element. According to Pearson, speaking on Smith’s behalf, the Kerrville woman worked as an assistant manager at Lowe’s in Kerrville from January 2002 until her dismissal on Aug.
Pearson said the Lowe’s management engaged in a pattern and practice of retaliation over workers’ compensation claims.” Three other former Kerrville employees — David Mata, Norman Morris and Bryan Morey — are being represented in wrongful dismissal claims against the home improvement warehouse chain.
Lowe’s spokeswoman Chris Ahearn said Wednesday she had no record of the alleged debt collection against Smith. Some cables must be embedded in a separate layer of concrete or mortar, whereas other systems can simply be installed in the thin set. He said an attempt to claim more than $500 from Smith using a debt collection was abandoned by Lowe’s after the lawsuit was filed in November 2003.
