What do you do if the court decertifies your collective of hundreds or even thousands of opt-ins? Decertification need not be the end of your case, but you must have a well thought out game plan. Practitioners with post-decertification experience will discuss their strategies for keeping the pressure on defendants after decertification and issues with appealing the decision, communicating with decertified opt-in plaintiffs, re-filing individual or multi-plaintiff cases, tolling, and settling cases post-decertification.
