    What is the authority for CA residents doing projects out of CA?

    From pages 17-18 of the slip opinion:

    "The only question we decide here is whether Plaintiffs have a valid claim under § 17200 for alleged violations of the FLSA outside of California. The district court concluded that § 17200 does not apply to any violations of the FLSA outside of California. We agree with the district court.

    In Norwest Mortgage, Inc. v. Superior Court, 85 Cal.Rptr. 2d 18 (Ct. App. 1999), the California Court of Appeal held that § 17200 does not have extraterritorial application. ... Based on Norwest Mortgage, we conclude that § 17200 does not apply to the claims of nonresidents of California who allege violations of the FLSA outside California."

    Work performed outside California would be governed exclusively by the FLSA or the laws of the state in which the work is performed. This could be significant if the claims are more than two to three years old, due to the application of various statutes of limitations.
