Louis Smith however never had a yearly evolution up to the day of his discharge on 11/12/08.
Louis Smith has a disability and is diagnosed of having a personality disorder. Personality disorder, formerly referred to as a Character Disorder, is a class of mental disorders characterized by rigid and on-going patterns of feeling, thinking, and behavior. The underlying belief systems informing these patterns are referred to as fixed fantasies or “dysfunctional schemata” (Cognitive modules). The inflexibility and pervasiveness of these behavioral patterns often cause serious personal and social difficulties, as well as a general functional impairment. Louis even made both Jacquie Forrester and Debbie Collins aware of his personality disorder disability.

On November 12, 2007 I was fired unjustly by the store manager.
Unable to go over the full details because I’m in a employment lawsuit with them.

Facts in the case to continue…….

Do he realized that he can sue her for breach of confidentiality and also the fact she broke healthcare laws under HIPPA! Employers are always mandated to keep employee info private and especially if they worked prior for a different company. If you have his info tell him to get an attorney fast for Personal Injury and contact HIPPA, she could jailed and fined for her violations of privacy!!

You and Louis Smith can also sue for damages for being a whistleblower on the matter. I would've been on the phone with their CEO corporate and if I had to write letters to CEO own home, i would. Because this conduct can make a company go under and lose business. Contact the Labor Board of the State, Employment office, also HIPPA and do a complaint. No is allowed to give any employees healthcare information It's against the law and a federal offense. And also the District Attorney's office as I see this is a form of harassment and actually illegal. If you told me something personal especially a healthcare condition, I can't tell no one else without your permission.

I've been calling the CEO at stein Mart in Jacksonville and he will not return my call. I have filed a charge with the EEO as of Jan 23, 2009 and I now have Mr. Louis Watson out of Jackson as my lawyer. I was offered a job with Sears and in Hattiesburg and Bryan the store manager at sears told me that he would not hire anyone what is sue happy. I was told by the stein mart manager at store 89 that I had filed a EEOC charge. What is this world coming to... Everyone should BAN Sears and Stein Mart Store in this Country!!!
