Overview

Adam Sloustcher represents local, regional and national employers in a broad range of employment disputes, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination matters. Further, Adam represents employers in both individual and class-action lawsuits involving alleged violations of wage & hour laws, as well as claims brought under California’s Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA).

Adam also provides day-to-day preventative counseling regarding hiring, discipline and termination practices, leaves of absences, the interactive process and reasonable accommodations, and preparation of employment handbook and personnel policies. He also assists employers with investigations of alleged harassment, discrimination and other misconduct in the workplace.

In addition to practicing law, Adam conducts management training and lectures on employment issues. He teaches classes about FMLA/CFRA and wage & hour issues for in-house counsel, human resources professionals, and other management personnel and is a guest lecturer for an employment law course at San Diego State University. Adam is also active with the California Restaurant Association, Sports Lawyers Association, California Minority Counsel Program, and Pan Asian Lawyers of San Diego.

Adam’s drive to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients stems from his competitive athletic background. Growing up, he was a member of the Under-17 and Under-18 U.S. Youth National Soccer teams and named a McDonald’s and Parade All-American. Adam went on to accept a full athletic scholarship to the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and would later transfer to Loyola Marymount University – where he became team captain of the university’s NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Team. Adam then played professional soccer with the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer.
