Item 2.02    Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On October 19, 2006, Robert Half International Inc. issued a press release reporting earnings for the third fiscal quarter of 2006. 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 September 10, 2004, Plaintiff Mark Laffitte, on behalf of a putative class of salaried Account Executives and Staffing Managers, filed a complaint in California Superior Court naming the Company and three of its wholly owned subsidiaries as Defendants. As previously reported, on June 22, 2006, the Court heard cross-motions concerning class certification. On September 18, 2006, the Court issued an order certifying a class with respect to claims for alleged unpaid overtime pay but denied certification with respect to claims relating to meal periods and rest time breaks. On September 29, 2006, the Company filed a motion for reconsideration. 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 continue to vigorously defend against the litigation. Reference is made to Note G to the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) included in the Company’s Form 10-Q or for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2006 for a complete description of this case.
