The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has determined, in the context of a wage-andhour dispute, that different opting mechanisms for class members provided by federal and state law “do not require dismissal of the state claims.” Busk v. Integrity Staffing Solutions, Inc., No. 11-16892 (9th Cir., decided April 12, 2013). So ruling, the court joined the Second, Third, Seventh, and D.C. circuits, finding that they had “correctly reasoned that FLSA’s [the Fair Labor Standard Act’s] plain text does not suggest that a district court must dismiss a state law claim that would be certified using an opt-out procedure.” The FLSA does not bind a potential plaintiff unless she “affirmatively ‘opts in’’ to the lawsuit.
