Item 2.02
Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On April 23, 2015, Robert Half International Inc. issued a press release reporting earnings for the first fiscal quarter of 2015. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
The foregoing information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being “furnished” and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and shall not be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such future filing.
Item 8.01
Other Events.
On March 23, 2015, Plaintiff Jessica Gentry, on her own behalf and on behalf of a putative class of allegedly similarly situated individuals, filed a complaint against the Company in the Superior Court of California, San Francisco County. The complaint alleges that a putative class of current and former employees of the Company working in California since March 13, 2010 were denied compensation for the time they spent interviewing “for temporary and permanent employment opportunities” as well as performing activities related to the interview process. Gentry seeks recovery on her own behalf and on behalf of the putative class in an unspecified amount for this allegedly unpaid compensation. Gentry also seeks recovery of an unspecified amount for the alleged failure of the Company to provide her and the putative class with accurate wage statements. Gentry also seeks an unspecified amount of other damages, attorneys’ fees, and statutory penalties, including penalties for allegedly not paying all wages due upon separation to former employees. At this stage of the litigation, it is not feasible to predict the outcome of or a range of loss, should a loss occur, from this proceeding and, accordingly, no amounts have been provided in the Company’s Financial Statements. The Company believes it has meritorious defenses to the allegations and the Company intends to vigorously defend against the litigation.
The Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 contained disclosure under Note O to the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Subsequent Events) regarding a complaint filed on January 23, 2015 by April Washington, on her own behalf and on behalf of two separate putative subclasses.  As previously reported, the Company believes it has meritorious defenses to the allegations and has vigorously defended against the litigation.  On April 20, 2015, the parties to this action entered into a formal written settlement agreement for an amount immaterial to the Company. The actual settlement of the case is contingent upon the Court’s approval of the settlement agreement. Based on the terms contained in the settlement agreement, the Company has determined that this litigation is not currently a material legal proceeding. Accordingly, the Company does not presently intend to make disclosures regarding this case in its Securities and Exchange Commission filings filed subsequent to its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.
