Former Female Employee Accuses Lowe’s of Sexual Assault and Harassment in the Workplace

Share Article

In a complaint filed by Makarem & Associates APLC in the Tuolumne Superior Court on Friday, April 30, 2021 (Case No. CV63807), a former Lowe’s customer service assistant alleges that Lowe’s Home Improvement failed to prevent sexual assault and harassment by a Lowe’s supervisor.

Plaintiff Jane Doe’s Complaint alleges that Plaintiff was targeted by the Lowe’s supervisor. According to the Complaint, Plaintiff has intellectual and emotional disabilities. The Complaint further alleges that Plaintiff was sexually assaulted and harassed by the Lowe’s supervisor on multiple occasions.

Plaintiff also alleges that after one incident in which the Lowe’s supervisor grabbed Plaintiff, pulled her to the back of the store, and began touching Plaintiff without her consent, she broke down hysterically and complained to Lowe’s Human Resources Department about the multiple incidents of sexual assault and harassment by the Lowe’s supervisor. Plaintiff further alleges that after she complained, she was sent home early and placed on a 4-day paid, administrative leave. According to the Complaint, upon Plaintiff’s return to Lowe’s, Lowe’s allegedly assigned Plaintiff to a different position for which she had no experience, cut Plaintiff’s scheduled hours in half and otherwise ostracized Plaintiff.

Such alleged conduct violates the Fair Employment and Housing Act, which prohibits employers from discriminating against an individual because of sex and from retaliating against employees who object to discrimination. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by the Fair Employment and Housing Act.
