1 Shareholder 501 W. Broadway Suite 900 San Diego, CA main: (619) direct: (619) fax: (619) Focus Areas Discrimination and Harassment Litigation and Trials Class Actions Hiring, Performance Management and Termination Overview John S. Adler has an established practice in employment litigation, with extensive first chair state and federal court jury and bench trial experience in discrimination, harassment, retaliation, pay practices, civil rights, defamation and free speech, and breach of contract claims. His practice also includes federal and state court appellate advocacy and numerous first-chair oral appellate arguments in complex employment matters, the defense of contested claims in arbitrations, mediations and administrative hearings, and ongoing counseling and working with employers regarding workplace practices, workforce restructuring including The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) and Cal-WARN Act compliance, problem-solving and discipline. John counts both Fortune 500 companies and major public employers among his clients, which span the following industries: Higher education Biotechnology Military defense Professional services Manufacturing Retail Non-profit 1

2 He litigates wage and hour class actions, cases involving workplace assault, First Amendment issues and unfair competition, and bargaining agreement enforcement for public entities. He also handles matters arising under: Title VII The Americans with Disabilities Act The Age Discrimination in Employment Act The Family and Medical Leave Act 42 U.S.C. Sections 1981 and 1983 The Fair Employment and Housing Act California and federal wage and hour laws John's substantial litigation successes include obtaining defense verdicts in many jury and bench trials and arbitration proceedings, including cases involving claims of unpaid compensation, retaliatory/whistleblower termination, harassment, discrimination and the Equal Pay Act, and sexual assault and negligent hiring. He has also successfully prevented injunctive relief and damages sought in unfair competition and trade secret litigation. Recently, following several years of litigation, he obtained a complete defense verdict for a major national client following a two week federal court jury trial in a national origin/race discrimination and whistleblower case. In another recent matter, he was lead trial counsel for a pharmacy chain client in a state court wrongful termination, FEHA sexual harassment and retaliation, and battery case and obtained a complete defense verdict following a six-day jury trial. In a matter concluded in June 2015, he was lead counsel obtaining a complete defense verdict in Arizona federal court for a major national company in a twenty cause of action False Claims Act, whistleblower wrongful termination and defamation case, which also included the award and recovery of over $100, in fees and costs by Littler s client. In a 2014 matter, John was lead counsel obtaining a complete defense award following a four-day state court arbitration hearing for a publicly-held national company in a matter alleging harassment and retaliation. Additionally, as examples, John has obtained defense summary judgments or dismissals of litigation without payment of compensation in: A sexual harassment and constructive discharge case A disability discrimination case Several Fair Employment and Housing Act cases, including a multi-plaintiff FEHA suit A whistleblower/retaliatory discharge case A retaliatory discharge/feha case, in which he also obtained a defense verdict in a related five-day union contract arbitration John was an adjunct professor of law at the University of San Diego School of Law teaching employment litigation for that entire period, and teaching sports law for part of that time.
