Welcome, Adam,

It's not only the lippage, it's also the grout joints. Neither are acceptable, especially if a "professional" was hired to do the work.

Well, it shouldn't be slippery. Do you have any idea if the tiles are bonded to a surface type membrane or did they bond it to the mud bed?

Welcome, Adam.

Tough situation. I can't tell how much lippage you actually have. Those close-up photos can be deceptive, 'specially to old eyes. That said, it looks pretty bad to me.

Problem is, the ceramic tile industry standards provide specific wording and charts to describe allowable lippage, but the same standard specifically exempts "tiled floors sloping to drains."

While it's difficult to argue a case for excessive lippage on flat floors and equally difficult to actually measure, it's even more difficult to argue your case where the industry standard doesn't apply. I think you're left with the traditional general standards such as "workmanlike manner" and "contemporary professional standards."

How to correct the situation if you prevail in your argument is also difficult and much depends upon your answer to Davy's question about how your shower receptor was waterproofed.

My opinion; worth price charged.

In my opinion, it's not acceptable.
