Permissions For user in Group

all users can create a directoy with drwxrwsr-x except for this one user. The directory is drwxr-sr-x. Files are the same way touch file -rw-rw-r is what the other users create. The touch for this user is -rw-r-r. Its driving me insane. This is not just in a specific directory. This is for all files and directories.

Please help

It looks like there was an issue with the primary group the user was in.
most users in the passwd file have both UID:GID the same. Example.
5037:5037. This user had 5037:5000 Even though this person was in the correct group it seems that because 5037 was not the users primary group that that was the issue.
