Many employers who are sued for discrimination on the basis of race, sex or age often claim that the lawsuit is politically motivated. These individuals claim that the plaintiffs are not really in the best interests of the corporation. They do not want to provide an employment environment that attracts people who are gay or African American. They do not want to provide an environment that attracts people with different sexual orientations and beliefs.
However, this type of argument is not usually effective and many companies that are accused of discrimination are found guilty. Therefore if you believe you are a victim of discrimination at your local Lowes you should contact a discrimination lawyer.
If you want to be compensated for your losses, you must have evidence to prove that you were discriminated against at Lowes.

Once you have proof of discrimination, you will want to gather witnesses who can testify to your claims. These witnesses can include an employee or a customer of your store, anyone you talked to about your situation, any manager or owner of Lowes, etc.
In many cases you will be able to prove that the company failed to properly train employees or managers and that they failed to treat you in a consistent and appropriate way.
